  • I went with two friends to the museum as we were really interested in finding out more about Ho Chi Minh, however we found it quite disappointing. The price is good, but there isnt a clear layout to t...  more »
  • A museum with full focus on Ho Chi Minh and his significance for the Vietnamese people. There are lots of pictures, statues, description of Vietnam's history. Clothes worn by Ho Chi Minh and pictures of all the greats that he has met. The entire Museum is a tribute to Ho Chi Minh. Admission costs the equivalent of about 5 sec. Not one tourist was seen to but many Vietnamese school children. If you are very interested in Vietnam's history may be worth a visit but for a European it feels unusual about this type of personality cult. Some of the exhibits have English description otherwise mostly in Vietnamese. A cafe is right next to where you can soak up the atmosphere and have some views of the city and the river.

  • While this museum is small, it is a must visit on a trip to Ho Chi Minh City. There are lots of pictures and plenty of English text.

  • 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.
  • One of the most places I suggest visiter go to! The ticket very cheap 5000VND (about $0.25 USD)
  • Great place to take pictures of the entire city from the other side. You can get some great view
  • I love it. If you want to know about Vietnamese, Ho Chi Minh President. Go to here.
