Once a French shipping company known as Dragon House Wharf, the Ho Chi Minh Museum hosts an eclectic collection of the former leader's possessions. On display are Uncle Ho's sandals and radio, among other items. Twenty-one year old Nguyen Tat Thanh, later known as Ho Chi Minh, began his struggle for independence here. The museum is open every day except Monday. It is closed Friday mornings.
Ho Chi Minh Museum is located on Nguyen Tat Thanh Street in Saigon's District 4, at The Dragon House Wharf. Built in 1863 and originally called Nha Rong, the museum sits at the junction of the Ben Nghe Channel and Saigon River. Thus far over 10 million visitors have enjoyed the pieces on display at the Ho Chi Minh Museum.
