Visited here for half a day. Fascinating insight into how ‘Uncle Ho’ lived and to see his embalmed body was fascinating. It was extremely busy when we visited but the queue moved fast.

Only saw it from the outside yet because it seems a bit of trouble to go in. But already the outside and the whole setup with the "park" in front of it is impressive.
