Ho Chi Minh Museum

HanoiHo Chi Minh Museum is a triumphalist monument dedicated to the life of the founder of modern Vietnam, and the onward march of revolutionary socialism.

The museum of a huge concrete Soviet-style was constructed in the 1990s, designed to take the visitor through Ho Chi Minh’s life and times, via a series of consecutively viewed exhibits.

Visitors must join a queue and file through the room without stopping. No photography is allowed, and all personal possessions must be left outside.

Mementos of Ho’s life are showcased, and there are some fascinating photos and dusty old official documents relating the overthrow of the French and rise of communism. Three floors are crowded with exhibits of photography, as well as lots of war machinery.
