One of the most amazing museums I have ever set foot in, and definitely worth the trip. The displays are so interesting and breathtaking. I would definitely recommend spending a day here just looking around both the museum and the site it's on.
What made this experience wonderful is we had a 10 year old tour guide who was there and wanted to practice his English. He was wonderful and was an endless fountain of knowledge. I loved his enthusiasm for his country and his desire to learn and issue English - which was terrific. He deserves a 5 star review lol. If you're not so lucky, it's a fine museum to explore Uncle Ho after visiting the mauseleum. Displays are also in English so you can follow along. It's obviously a favorable account, so don't go in expecting anything critical. A lot of reading with some personal artifacts and displays about the different eras of his life. Interesting gallery with propaganda posters was a highlight.
