Impressive and well maintained communist building. Lots of artwork and things to look at, but I just didn't get it! It is basically just a collection of things that Ho Chi Minh owned or liked, which is fine as it's a museum about him, but some of the items were just so loosely related to him, or just of no real interest, it was a little inconceivable. For example, I'm pretty sure there was a pen in a cabinet that had been used by Ho Chi Minh, and the same for a shovel he once dug with...
That aside, however, it's worth a visit just so you can say you have been, there's some interestingly weird artworks and things to take photos of - and the mausoleum and 4 pillar pagoda are nearby.
It is (as of 2011) also free - Beware of touts outside selling "tickets" (which you don't need) as they will try and convince you need tickets to see it.
