worth seeing and understanding this important figure to the Vietnamese people of "dear Uncle". I enjoyed learning from our guide what he meant to them

I visited the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum during the June school holidays in Hanoi. My tour guide and I arrived there early, which was good, because there were soon great queues stretching back to the street entrance of the complex. There were very few Westerners....More

It was closed when we tried to visit (check before you go especially on the weekend), but we walked past it on the outside and the view at sunset was rewarding.

The security is extremely strict and somewhat aggressive. You have to line up and walk silently into the mausoleum and walk around the glass coffin and out. Youre not allowed to stop. It was a weird experience to see Ho Chi Minhs body. There are...More

Clearly hugely respected by all the Vietnamese (at least in the northern two-thirds), the embalmed figure of Ho Chi Minh is something to see. Slightly eerie, with head and hands lit up and everything else shrouded in black, yet very peaceful. Family had mixed feelings...More

This was worth seeing. The history of Ho Chi Minh was interesting. We were lucky to have gone on a quiet day and not wait too long in the line. Watch out guards can be strict while lining up. We were lucky to have hired...More

A must see for visitors to Hanoi. The lines can be long but move quickly. Dress modestly not only at the museum but anywhere in the north of Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh's house is also on the property.

Are you allowed to take a camera inside, even if your not using it there? Maos Mausoleum has rules that make you leave it outside for example.

What is the best time of day to visit? Is it worth getting there before it opens to be at the front of the queue?

Response from Soon Hin Y | Reviewed this property |
The queue is much shorter towards the closing time. But bear in mind, if you intend to visit the museum and Uncle Ho's house of stilts, they close at 12noon and reopen at around 1.30pm-2pm. I am not sure if you have to pass... More
