The museum, the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and the relic site create a combination of architecture, history and culture to commemorate the beloved leader of the Vietnamese people, the outstanding soldiers of the national liberation movement, and international communist and workers movements.

Ho Chi Minh Museum is located at No. 19, Ngoc Ha Street (Ba Dinh, Hanoi) and is a four-storey building with a total area of over 10.000 square metres. The building is designed based on the image of a lotus flower bloom, symbolising the virtuousness of President Ho Chi Minh.
