The building itself has not much to see. For going inside, you need to pass a security control and walk trough a glass corridor till the main entrance. Once there guards make you walk fast. The chamber were Ho stays is very cold and half dark. However, it was a stunning visit to a historical site.

This visit is what it is. Seeing the embalmed body of the hero of this great nation. What I didn't like was to walk and wait under that toasting heat with almost no coverage and no water. The visit to the house on stills and pillar pagoda was nice.

So, we were on a private tour, where we were standing under a tree for shade, listening to our guide. Unfortunately, it was a Monday and the building was closed up so that no public could go inside. We went mid-afternoon and it was really really hot. Not a pleasant heat to go to this place. I recommend you go... More

As a young adult during Australia's involvement in VN this was something I really wanted to understand. Worth doing the Mausoleum and the general precinct as it does help to understand what was going on.

This is interesting, but my research was not good enough so I went through the 'outside only' entrance before realising I couldn't get into the mausoleum. This meant lots of extra walking with no shade. The mausoleum entrance is on Ngoc Ha. The line line moves pretty quickly and is mostly covered. There is no entrance fee, and there are... More

Although it was pouring with rain we still enjoyed our visit especially Uncle Ho's very modest home which contains all the original furnishings and accoutrements. Disappointed that we did not get into the actual mausoleum for viewing the glass case. Still the Changing of the Guard ceremony and the beautiful gardens were worthwhile.

Found this interesting with some good history knowledge and a lot of info about Ho Chi Minh. This was included on a full day tour around Hanoi

The Mausolum itself is nothing special but what makes mandatory to go there is the mummified body of Ho Chi Min, even if you have just few seconds to see him. The mausoleum is for free. You have to pay a ticket just to visit Ho Chi Min house and the One Pillar Pagoda.

I'm actually just passed through this place because it's already 6PM at that time and I feel lucky because when I came, I saw the process of guard change. It's kinda unique so I like it.. And also if you want to go to this place remember that they're close at monday and friday
