  • In photo, this museum traces the notoriety of Ho Chi Minh. It is interesting to discover or rediscover significant dates for the country, but in my opinion it lacks important information such as the biography of Ho Chi Minh: whence? Why did live abroad? How did become president? Etc... Questions that remain unanswered at the exit. Too bad.

  • A little difficult to access, we get initially and after purchase of the very cheap tickets (10.000VND / pers.) in a friendly garden with benches in the shade and a fountain. Past this point, you enter the museum itself consists of a series of room filled with photo. We notice very quickly that without solid base on the history of president Ho Chi Minh and the Viet Nam in general it is quickly lost. After a few minutes of visit we realize finally that it is actually not a museum but an exhibition on the life of the president idealized by propaganda. No recoil is a price any time, Wikipedia was given much more than an afterthought credible information in a few minutes. In summary, to see as an exhibit on propaganda around a man of importance to the ideology of the times.

  • 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.
