The Ho Chi Minh Museum is a hidden gem that offers very interesting views into Uncle Ho and the creation of modern Vietnam. For the thousands (tens of thousands?) of people who go to Ho's masouleum, it is amazing how many miss this, very eclectic, but well done museum.

Visited this place after the mausoleum with the same ticket. Gives you an insight into some aspects of Ho Chi Minh life style. You get to see his house and study. Very minimalistic life style.Lovely grounds with Pond full of Koi Carp.

A papier machie replica of Gurnica, Giant fruit on a wonky table and Chinese tour groups. I may as well have aborted the mission but I stuck with it until the end and came out wondering what it was all about.

This museum is not worth a visit unless you loke to see the propaganda and parafernalia from the comunists used in the war. To a historian I believe it must be a very nice choice, but in my opinion there are more interestingplaces in Hanoi than this one.

If your are interest about the life of Ho Chi Minh, this place may be a good spot for you. I can't enjoy it that much. This place try to demonastrate the whole life of Ho Chi Minh.

It was very interesting to see the history, but if you are limited on time you can definitely give it a miss! It will take you about an hour to go through.

A lot of things to read. A lot. But also a whole lot of objects displayed in a quite nice museum. Somewhat under reconstruction when we were there and some thing seems a bit unfinished but overall its well Worth a visit.

Took me completely by surprise. The first floor is a standard museum, not very inspiring. The second floor is completely unique and a real joy. Shows how abstract and experimental architecture and art Vietnam can be. Well worth a visit.

If you have the time you can walk trough this free museum. It is alright to see, but it is more for the Vietnamese people. You don't get much information about Ho Chi Minh. Definitely not a must see, but it is easy to combine with other activities in the area.
