Owner description: This Lenin statue in a park at Nguyen Thai Hoc avenue is one of the few remains I saw of a recent communist past here in Vietnam. Now it seems Sony neon advertising are prefered to those old sovietic symbols... the signs of the times!

“Leading the way to the future.”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

Across from The Army Museum, this statue is in a small park full of real Hanoi life. Don't expect anyone to consider the political implications. And don't ask about them. Lenin guards an empty square, which is used in early morning for exercise, and in the evening for community dancing, children's games. Life goes on under Lenin's outreached arm.
It's vacant from 10 AM until evening. Not because the people don't like Lenin. it's just too hot most of the year to play outdoors.

“Yep, a Big Statue of Lenin”
Reviewed November 6, 2009

OK, this is more of a drive-by attraction than something to go see. It is interesting to see that they have a big statue of Lenin, and it is a well done piece, but not something to go to this area specifically to look at. Average visiting time, less than 5 minutes.
