  • Cool place. Lot of history. Display are very good. Grounds are nice to walk around. Spend time about 2 hours here
  • The place is easy to find, the ticket price is cheap 2000vnd for the VNese. You can know more about the Uncle Ho all his lifetime thanks to this museum. We have a beautiful woman who guide us one by one picture
  • The building itself is beautiful and it has a nice view but the museum is just about the same propaganda you probably saw everywhere else in vietnam.
  • Fantastic little museum- charts Ho Chi Minh's whole life. Great views of the river as well. It's worth the walk
  • not a very good museum, nice building but the collection is very random and very well presented.
