A lot of time and planning was clearly put into the building of this museum, however a lot was left out. We asked a museum worker where the exhibits started as we wanted to learn more about the man and history of Vietnam. But we were directed to start somewhere on the second floor in the middle of the independence... More

This is spsctacular. From outside it looks as a regular one but once u enter in the main hall you will get to know why i said so. Its architecture and interiors are one of the best i have seen till date in any museum. Best is that photography is allowed inside. Statue of Ho Chi Minh is so beautiful... More

The exhibits had a lot of documents which should interest history buffs and academics. The top floor of the museum looked newer but the exhibits were not engaging. Plenty of space which they had to fill with strange exhibits like giant fruits. Several sections looked to be closed indefinitely. Even the locals seemed unintetested with the content as they just...

Ho Chi Minh Museum was well worth visiting and is in a huge building consisting of three floors. Each part of the museum covers different parts of his life and has some excellent displays, including a huge statue between the 2nd and 3rd floors. There is a small entrance fee and it is easy to spend two hours here.

Worth a visit during your visit to Hanoi. Ensure you go early in morning, if possible. Be prepared to queue, and hand over your camera (smartphone's allowed) when you enter Ho Chi Minh's tomb area.

The Ho Chi Minh Museum is a brilliant insight into the life and context of Ho Chi Minh. The way the museum is designed is gorgeous, and the information given is so informative. You don't need too long for a visit, and yet you are able to learn so much in such a short period of time. Anyone with even... More

Its two floors of exhibits and souvenir shops and outdoor garden and park need two hours or more to explore and appreciate. We only had an hour but made do by choosing what to read more and absorb. Some of the exhibits feature text in small font or untranslated Vietnamese; it may not be useful for some tourists. I enjoyed... More

Hi Chi Minh Museum is great not only for information about the life of the president but also it has stunning attractions and symbolic interpretations of events and ideals from Ho Chi Minh's reign. The installations are stunning and very "artsy" and gives the whole place an art gallery vibe rather than a museum. A must see in Hanoi.

This is a big museum to Ho Chi Minh. It is a strange mix of exhibits; part in depth journey through his life in pictures and with lots of reading and part kitsch soviet style symbolical art exhibition. Interesting but could be so much better.

The best part of the museum were the gardens that surrounded it, probably one of the nicest green areas of Hanoi. You can enter for free. The museum has 4 levels. On the ground floor, there are offices and three souvenir shops (tea sets, magnets, bags, lots of paintings and pictures of Ho Chi Minh). The next two levels are... More
