I went with my family, and this was really cool to go see. We were walked around the gardens and then walked through the building. Even though it was really strict and secure it was still cool to have a look.

Unfortunately our tour group arranged our visit here on a Monday - the one day that the actual Mausoleum containing Uncle Ho is closed, as was the Museum of Ho Chi Minh. Great service!! However, we were able to visit the surrounds and former homes of Ho Chi Minh with our guide, which was very interesting and well worth the... More

Had a great time good food and amazing shops, friendly people very good with kids. Traffic is crazy makes life hard and the smoke can't be good for you

The opening hours for the actual mausoleum are quite limited, nonetheless it is located in a very attractive part of Hanoi, with wide tree lined boulevards, and beautiful homes and embassies. As no cars or mopeds are allowed into the mausoleum it is a pleasant peaceful haven with wide walkways and many attractive flower beds.

A bit of history and good photo opportunity. Worth a quick visit for few photos. Good guide will fill you in about the history and legacy...or better still just look it up in a guide book or Google it... Must to see if your in Hanoi..lots of impressive qovernment buildings near by...significant French influenced architecture in the area..

Take care to check opening times - for me it was closed as Ho Chi Minh was visiting Moscow. The square in front of the mausoleum is large and imposing. the changing of the guard is well worth waiting for.

When I went there the mausoleum was closed for visitors. But stll I'm happy to have passed by. It's typical socialist architecture with huge buildings and a huge boulevard for parades. Also seen the changing of the guard procedure.

It really is an honor to get to view Ho Chih Minh's body even if it's also very creepy as he has been embalmed for ages. As my guide said, you can view him from 8-11 and then he goes back in the fridge! The line moves fast. I went with a guide but there is a charge.

The security is very strict here. They only allow one group to go in at a time. It was a very quick "trip", probably less than 10 minutes from lining up to walking through the mausoleum. We had a one year old who couldn't walk and he was not allowed inside. So my husband and I took turns in going... More

The changing of guard was fun to see and we were fortunate to habe a nice sunny day. You can then go just around the corner and visit the palace.
