Dedicated to Vietnam's founder, this museum in Hanoi is worth a visit mostly for its hallucinatory third floor exhibitions which include everything from sculptures of giant fruit representing wartime food shortages to photographs surrounding the life of the museum's namesake. The Ho Chi Minh Museum in Hanoi is a proud preserver of objects linked to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam's revolutionist.
Ho Chi Minh was the first Prime Minister and then President of North Vietnam. Hanoi's Ho Chi Minh Museum was built in memory of the man whose name is written in golden letters in Vietnam's history books. The museum is open from Tuesday to Thursday, 8am to 11am, and 1:30pm to 4pm. Remember to check your handbags, backpacks and cameras at the entrance desk as none of these objects are permitted inside the museum.
