This museum was terrible. I learned about 10 times that Ho Chi Mihn was a cook on a boat and went by the name Van Ba. Glaring historical inaccuracy but worse than that,just plain boring. Nothing interactive, not even videos. Cool art on the top floor was the only thing that got this 2 stars. Hard Skip for future travelers.

We didn't learn much - we would have benefited from a better understanding before we went. It didn't seem to flow well or tell a clear story. We exited from a different area to what we entered through, which was a little confusing to re-orientate ourselves and walk on to our next planned destination.

Found this museum really fascinating. Heaps of big Soviet shows of unity and equality. And much information about Ho Chi Minh and his many years of work ahead of hostilities. Really interesting exhibits, and laid out in the stark style of former USSR exhibits. We're massive crowds, but worth a visit after seeing the Mausoleum

Wonderful historical tour of the Ho Chi Minh Museum. Very interesting displays and excellent your guides Can be very busy on Sunday mornings so be prepared for that. Wet weather gear is a must in August. Bring your umbrella.

If you like history, then you will like this museum. I particularly liked the flip books with pictures and documents, A lot were in Vietnamese but some did have English translations. Most things centered around Ho Chi Min. I think most can quickly catch the propoganda at play. I am still wondering how he managed to travel most of the... More

We started with a baguette and an ice coffee ...very reasonable here...we were recharging batteries after the tunnels We walked around the military transport, planes tanks and helicopters. This was the only place we experienced begging. A man late sixties with two stumps for arms was selling war history books from a bag or basket hanging around his neck. He... More

Personally I don't like extremes, neither extremely capitalist or extremely communist... This is not just a museum but a place with much propaganda, it's a pity they don't say anything about the history of Vietnam before HCM is just about how good HCM and his people were and how bad others were to Vietnamese people... Well some few interesting things... More
