  • Didn't want to go to the museum BUT for the equivalent of 1€, we thought well no harms. At the entrance we were approached by a lady if we do not want a guide - completely free of charge. In fact, we would be assisted by a volunteer who spoke very well in English and guided us through the entire museum. Rarely have I been so enthusiastic!!!! The young guide (early/ mid 20s) tried to explain the most important things as best we could and answered all our questions about the museum, Ho Chi Minh, Altag and life in Vietnam. It was really interesting. With Guid again at any time. Thank you :)

  • Museum is not worth visiting at all. The history and advance of Ho Chi Minh is not clear and it is very unclear. In addition, it's crazy that you have to pay as a tourist, while you don't get much to nothing back for it. It's a shame of your time making a money.

  • One of the most amazing museums I have ever set foot in, and definitely worth the trip. The displays are so interesting and breathtaking. I would definitely recommend spending a day here just looking around both the museum and the site it's on.
  • What made this experience wonderful is we had a 10 year old tour guide who was there and wanted to practice his English. He was wonderful and was an endless fountain of knowledge. I loved his enthusiasm for his country and his desire to learn and issue English - which was terrific. He deserves a 5 star review lol. If you're not so lucky, it's a fine museum to explore Uncle Ho after visiting the mauseleum. Displays are also in English so you can follow along. It's obviously a favorable account, so don't go in expecting anything critical. A lot of reading with some personal artifacts and displays about the different eras of his life. Interesting gallery with propaganda posters was a highlight.
