Unfortunately, mostly closed due to a 3 months annual renovation break. Really: 3 months downtime each year? If so, why would that not be mentioned in travel brochures? Still, had some interesting exhibits on display.

fascinating place to visit but you need to give yourself a lot of time to really read and understand it all. Don't let that put you off though, we were only there for an hour and it was definitely still worth it.

I was first intrigued by the idea of a HCM museum showcasing the brilliance of Uncle Ho. I was expecting to learn a lot about him and what shaped his world view and outlook. When we entered, the place was chaotic. The exhibits were showcased...More
