  • The museum is a great place to visit if you want to learn about Ho Chi Minh from the perspective of the Vietnamese. Among the exhibits, you will find the biography of Ho Chi Minh in chronological order from the 1920s up until 1978. It records all of the places he went to and his achievement as a revolutionary. Visiting this place certainly helps you to learn about this man as an introduction. They provide sufficient English translation for the exhibits but with weird taste of the artistic decoration.
  • How this has such a high rating is beyond me. Series of photos and descriptions of the man's life on one level and some model/sculpture things relating to his life on the top floor. The statue is reasonable I guess
  • The Ho Chi Minh Museum is located in Hanoi, Vietnam. It is a museum dedicated to the late Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh and Vietnam's revolutionary struggle against foreign powers. It was constructed in the 1990s
