Tried to visit twice on our few days spent in Hanoi. Both days authorities had blockaded a large area surrounding the mausoleum so we had to take a big detour which wasn't ideal in the heat. The first time we went the whole area wasn't accessible to anyone. The second time the queue was at least 2 km long and that wasn't even including entering the complex and this was at 8.30am. Would have liked to have experienced this place but they made it so difficult to do so we had to skip it.

A very serious and revered place, not a must see, but it seems to be THE thing to do!
There is no entrance fee, we were told by a local that is to ensure there are always people queuing up and making it look good!
There is a barrier type walkway you must adhere to - it goes for several hundred meters around the park and the mausoleum building itself before you arrive at the entrance.
No photos are allowed when viewing the body. We noticed it was very quiet and respectful while on this walk and in the building, but the noise and babble of many people broke out after exiting the building.
We viewed glass fronted rooms of Ho Chi Mins house, looked at the majestic building which was built for him to live in and also the smaller house he preferred.
There is a lovely flower market in the street outside

Visited here for half a day. Fascinating insight into how ‘Uncle Ho’ lived and to see his embalmed body was fascinating. It was extremely busy when we visited but the queue moved fast.

Went Thursday 11/9 at 7:30am. At least 2000 people already there cued up for security check in. Mother uses wheelchair to get around. No problem. They not only escorted her past the hordes waiting for security but then 4 white clad soldiers physically picked her up and carried her up the flight of stairs to the entrance as well as thru the building to see their benevolent leader. Saved at leadt two hours, but more importantly, provided us an opportunity to see Uncle Ho in a peaceful state of rest.

We got to the Mausoleum at 745 and waited almost 1.5 hours just to get through security, we then waited a further 45 minutes to get into the actual building only to get told afterwards that Ho Chi Minh didn’t even want this, he wished to be cremated in his will!

Otherwise to see how he lived and the history was quite interesting, but the site was very busy!

Well worth a visit. Get a knowledgeable guide, there are lots of rules and regs to be observed so not as to show any disrespect, but worth the effort. The mausoleum opening times are also quite restricted at times too, I believe. Very moving. The rest of the site with Uncle Hos house, his cars and the beautiful grounds are worth a visit alone, but do try and do the tomb.

When we arrived at th Musoleum the queue to enter wove down two streets. The guards etc were very efficient in mpvong the crowds and doing the securiry checks. As we got closer they ensired that people stay quiet to ensure due respect is given to their leader. This efficiency and organisation saw us going in within around 30 minutes and it was all free. Then at the palace which required a ticket we coild take our time to roam around and see the places Ho Chi Minh lived and qorked. All this is very well maintained. Another must visit place.

Only saw it from the outside yet because it seems a bit of trouble to go in. But already the outside and the whole setup with the "park" in front of it is impressive.
