  • No entry fee on the square, Ho Chi Min museum costs 40k VND per person. Well maintained, clean place. Tight security; have to pass through body/bag scanning. No chewing gum allowed(yeah!).
  • Be cognizant of the hours the Mausoleum keeps. They close around lunchtime. Also I would recommend not visiting on the weekend. When we attempted to visit on a Saturday the line stretched several city blocks. I say this with no exaggeration. Also, if you have a Cab drop you off at the Mausoleum make sure they do so in the right location. If they drop you off in front of the lawn you'll have to walk a long distance to the entrance behind it.
