Ho Chi Minh Museum, Hanoi Reviews - Write a Review
It's 40k VND for an adult which isn't too expensive, plus it's air conditioned! The exhibits are an interesting balance of artistic and informative, but it's over very quickly. Probably only takes 30 minutes to see everything
Do not go there if you want to learn about Ho Chi Minh's or Vietnam's history. With very little and unreflected facts it is more of a biased communist art museum than a place to learn about an interesting person and character. Inconvenient opening hours with break from 12 to 2pm. 15 minutes before closing/mid-day-break they chase you out of the building and already close some exhibition rooms. Entrance fee for foreigners: 40,000 VND - for Vietnamese: free
Beautiful place. Be careful of taking pictures. The guards are not very friendly
Surprisingly modern and elegant inside especially the top level upstairs, but for other floors they seems so old and no air conditioning. Anyway it was the landmark that you should not miss, but beware of some strange holiday or closing time such as on Monday.
The exhibits started off interesting and informative but slowly became boring and vague as the museum went on. Most letters or writings from Ho Chi Minh offered no English translation so unless you like looking at gibberish I wouldn't bother. Not to mention half the rooms with artworks (which felt extremely out of place and detracted from HCM) were poorly or not lit at all or just empty and awkward. Reminded me of how NK builds huge buildings which are completely vacant. Weird vibes, wouldn't go back. I mean no disrespect.
