Step into a large space and overwhelmed the heroic image of the nation, witnessed emotional moments in the life and times of Uncle HO under many different ways of looking at people who do make up history I feel really lucky Interior. Thanks for the thoughtful preparation and establishment of the siblings, who are always ready to welcome and guide visitors to the affable.

  • This is Vietnam's largest museum I've ever visited, the airy space, clean, fresh air. Spacious facilities. Attitude of the staff here are friendly and enthusiastic. This is an ideal place to join friends with curricular activities or go with the family to the place of amusement, a picnic last week. I will definitely come back here many more times.

  • This is a strange museum. There are very few Ho Chi Minh artefacts but a lot of large and seemingly irrelevant abstract sculptures, with very little explanation. There are some of his letters but there's no translation. Not a place to learn about Ho Chi Minh. (However I would recommend the mausoleum)
  • We arrived at 12:05 to discover the museum was closed until 2pm. There is a heavy government presence in this area and most of the gardens are off limits to civilians and tourists. There are some humorous depictions of what happens to a variety of sinners. Of particular note is what happens to people who "waste time on travel".
  • Long queues but it moves quickly....about 40 minutes worth. Avoid the tourist shop/cafe on the right as you leave. Worst coffee ever! The viewing was respectful and interesting. The museum is certainly worth seeing to update knowledge of Vietnam history.
  • 40,000 VND entry fee, there are often long queues. check the times if you decide to go. should not expect to stay longer than 45 mins, air conned.
  • 40,000 VND per entry. 3 levels of exhibits. But because we went a bit too late, at 11.30pm, we were chased out after viewing only one level of exhibits as they were going for lunch at 12pm. Pretty disappointed. But that one level of exhibits that we have viewed is really interesting because it has quite a fair bit of Ho Chi Minh's writings and recordings of his experience in English. There were only some exhibits that did not have any English translation but that's only about 10% of them.
