"Ho Chi Minh Museum" Ho Chi Minh Museum Tip by Willettsworld

Ho Chi Minh Museum, Hanoi: 13 reviews and 25 photos


Housed in a lotus-shaped structure, this particular Ho Chi Minh Museum (there are several dotted around the country) is located not far from his mausoleum. A large gilded statue of Uncle Ho greets you in the entrance hall and, for me, this was the only interesting exhibit in the museum itself. Don?t expect to be tripping over exhibits from his life as there?s not many with only a few personal items, photos, and documents detailing the rise of the nation's Communist revolution. Expect instead a strange museum that for me was a little ?out there? and different to more conventional museums. Don?t get me wrong, you should still visit the museum but just leave your expectations of what you expect to find, behind!

Open: 8-11.30am & 1.30-4pm Tues-Sun. Admission: 15,000 VND.
