  • Went to gain more of an understanding of the history of Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh but I thought the museum contained a lot of art displays but the historic content was limited. The statue of Ho Chi...  more »
  • This is so interesting. The man who changed the face of Modern Vietnam was an ordinary guy who did an extraordinary thing. What an amazing life.  more »
  • A building meant to impress should have been an art museum for all the swirly design cases and massive exterior. The designers would have benefitted from reviewing successful museums worldwide as...  more »

  • One of the most amazing museums I have ever set foot in, and definitely worth the trip. The displays are so interesting and breathtaking. I would definitely recommend spending a day here just looking around both the museum and the site it's on.
  • What made this experience wonderful is we had a 10 year old tour guide who was there and wanted to practice his English. He was wonderful and was an endless fountain of knowledge. I loved his enthusiasm for his country and his desire to learn and issue English - which was terrific. He deserves a 5 star review lol. If you're not so lucky, it's a fine museum to explore Uncle Ho after visiting the mauseleum. Displays are also in English so you can follow along. It's obviously a favorable account, so don't go in expecting anything critical. A lot of reading with some personal artifacts and displays about the different eras of his life. Interesting gallery with propaganda posters was a highlight.
  • Nice place to see! If you are foreigners, it's worth seeing this museum to know more about Ho Chi Minh and why Vietnamese call him their old great father . It's better to take a free guide here, they're enthusiastic with knowledge and stories and always willing to help. I had a unforgettable time in this museum with them!
  • Interesting journey of history. Mainly since the HCM period. Nothing from previous timea
  • I think that this is the best museum that i have ever visited. This is very elegant. The design and the experience are blended in the same time. I didnt see the bad spot inside the museum. Everything looks gorgeous. Meanwhile, talking about the contents, the museum show us the amazing timeline and uniques story timeline to tell the story about Ho Chi Minh. Only for 1 lap walking, i have understood about the magnificent journey of Ho Chi Minh. I am very amazed. The building outside looks very strong and inside we feel the energy of Ho Chi Minh. However, some of the instruction and stories should be written in English that can make us understand quickly. Thank you
