The mausoleum was closed to the public while we were there but even just from the outside it is a very impressive place, honouring their great leader. Definitely worth a visit

Lots of beautiful buildings and a vibrant space to walk around in. Not a huge amount of information on Ho Chi Minh but you can seek this elsewhere. Queue looks long but only takes about 15/20 to get through

When we went it was closed for renovations but that was good because we got a good view of the outside of it and good pictures. Whereas normally apparently there are impossibly large crowds.

Interesting to see the amount of Vietnamese people visiting who they considered brought Vietnam to what it is today. Also to see ex military or government officials that are marched in via another entrance but are honoured by reef’s of flowers. Not only the mausoleum...More

Excellent displays. All written in English and French. We ll documented and lots of photos and history. Well worth the hour and half to walk around (depending on whether you're the kind that reads absolutely everything, in which case it would take 3 hours)

oops - sorry, only just saw your question. The answer is yes, especially for women and they are very strict about it. No bare knees or shoulders for men or women.
