Small museum but still worth a look at only 15,000 dong. Plenty of old artefacts and a great display of past currencies. Picture of the burning monk.

Visited this museum as it was quite close to reunification palace. Had to pay an admission fee. Museum was quite small, on two floors. Not a lot of people there. Had displays on various aspects of Vietnamese history, cultures, trade. It was a bit hot and stuffy as well. I would visit if you have some time to kill and... More

I was looking forward to this but the layout of the museum was confusing. There was no obvious route to follow and people who were obviously important in the struggle but no explanation of who they were. And we missed uncle Ho's sandles....

Museum has lots of history about the person. Where he was born, where he studied, and his campaigns & fights for independence. He traveled around the globe to solicit support for Viet Nam independence. Amazing to learn recognizing no airline travel then! Most displays have short English captions, which is needed to piece together the story. Not the first or... More

They really have nothing of any interest in this museum. "Cups drunk by workers who met Ho Chi Minh" was a key part. It was funny how bad the lack of anything was. I only bad 50c and felt ripped off! I went and got lost in the surrounding streets and met some good people which was more fun than... More

This museum is located next to the river in a beautiful orange building, surrounded by a lovely garden. There's a nice view of the river from the second floor of the museum. The museum is more of a shrine to Ho Chi Minh and his personality, and as such, suffers from extensive amounts of propaganda. As long as you keep... More

Not an attraction to go out of your way for, but if you are passing by call in for a quick dose of historical images of Ho Chi Minh. This museum is filled with lots of old photographs of Ho Chi Minh. Head to the 2nd floor and catch a relaxing view of the river and city. Be careful as... More
