This is not a place for kids and something I would not do again. The building is large and so are the grounds, but that's about all I like about it. The entry restrictions and security is prohibitive. It's like entering a bank within a bank ... and this is to see a tomb. Kids will get bored walking through... More

During my visit to Hanoi the place was closed for visiting inside, so it was not very interesting... Yet, it shows the importance of this hero for the country.

The mausoleum itself was closed for maintenance when we visited so check this out before you plan a trip, still a great building to see from the outside but a bit disappointing. You can still walk down the boulevard in front though

The mausoleum is closed for a couple of months each autumn winter - so check ahead before heading over there. It was closed when we were there, so I can't comment on the interior. But the Ho Chi Minh museum next door is worth a visit anyway, and you can view the exterior of the mausoleum on the way.

A must see venue whilst in Hanoi. Helps the tourist understand the reverence the Vietnamese have for this leader.

Very nice and recommended, it is possible to learn about Vietnamese culture, the Ho Chi Ming the man, and the communists in Vietnam. Also the contribution of the different countries that ruled Vietnam.

The Mausoleum is a centre of attraction for Vietnamese people. They go in the morning to pay homage to the late leader. Not only, Vietnamese, for non-Vietnamese also the place is attractive as one can see how a dead body is preserved.

I guess is one of the landmarks to see. Not a lot of exciting stuff though. Just go to visit and take photos.

Rather a strange experience viewing the preserved body of the great leader, whose express wish was to be buried normally. Not for everyone.
