Built in 1990, "Ho Chi Minh Museum" is part of the "Ho Chi Minh Complex" around "Ba Dinh Square" in Hanoi's "Old Quarter". It praises the memory of Vietnam's first President and National Hero, Ho Chi Minh (*May 9, 1890 +September 2, 1969). Inside, eight chronological exhibitions cover different parts of his life and memorabilia. Before going, please check carefully its visiting hours and dress properly. Entry fees almost inexpensive. Combine your visit with other nearby attractions. Enjoy!

Went to gain more of an understanding of the history of Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh but I thought the museum contained a lot of art displays but the historic content was limited. The statue of Ho Chi Minh is interesting.

This is so interesting. The man who changed the face of Modern Vietnam was an ordinary guy who did an extraordinary thing. What an amazing life.

A building meant to impress should have been an art museum for all the swirly design cases and massive exterior. The designers would have benefitted from reviewing successful museums worldwide as foreigners are some of their audience besides Vietnamese people going to learn about Ho Chi Minh and pay tribute. There’s videos but they’re on screens hanging from the ceiling in major thoroughfares. I didn’t crane my neck to watch long as I was afraid I was impeding traffic. There were too many displays with nothing but single spaced letters and other documents—impossible to read in their entirety. They would be more appropriate in a dedicated library. Interesting historical pictures were encased in a number of book-like displays that a person had to page through, that is if someone else wasn’t already turn the pages, one person at a time. While I wanted to know more about Ho Chi Minh’s childhood, education, positive and negative life experiences that informed his life, and how he rose to leadership, none of that was there. There just seemed to be no context. One only has to sit and people-watch for a moment to see that the vast majority of people, foreigners and Vietnamese walk through this museum fairly quickly. I felt I wasted a half day in transit and at this museum. I’ve included pictures of some of the swirly exhibits.

We wanted to see this museum in order to learn about Ho Chi Minh and the past of Vietnam in general. However, it felt more like a giant Art Gallery where we didn't even understand what the art is supposed to tell us. Then there is barely any signs to explain anything. We weren't even there for one hour, maybe 30 min max. Luckily we only paid little to get but it felt like a huge waste of time.
