Tips for you
Ho Chi Ming Wikipedia page should be better ! Cheap (20k dong). Better to go visiting temples & tombs in the countryside !
This review is quite late. The Ho Chi Minh museum is one of the less visited attractions in Hue. Most of the tours are geared towards the royal tombs, Thien Mu Pagoda and the Citadel. I happened to pass by this museum by chance from the train station. There was a small entrance fee but the displays are decent enough to make it worth the trip.
