"Wander the Ho Chi Minh Museum" Ho Chi Minh Museum Tip by AKtravelers
Ho Chi Minh Museum, Hanoi: 13 reviews and 25 photos
A site not to miss in Hanoi, even though it's not air conditioned as well as you'd like, is the Ho Chi Minh museum, which was monumentally hagiographic in a Soviet sort of way, with signs earnestly urging us to live with the morals and humility of Ho. To us, it was often unclear what those words, since most of the text was in Vietnamese with just short summaries in English. I quite enjoyed the tour and I was impressed with the grace our host exhibited when we got to the parts about how Ho defeated the Americans. It could have been quite an awkward moment, but all of us preferred to leave that dispute in the past.
