Embrace fraternity at the Ho Chi Minh Museum

This was the Soviet Union's “parting gesture of international socialist fraternity,” says Rusty Compass. As a result, the “none too subtle Soviet hand is visible” all over the Ho Chi Minh Museum -- such as “cars crashing through walls to represent the chaos of post-war American capitalism, soldiers charging around with electric plugs, a cave hideout re-imagined as the inside of Ho Chi Minh's brain, and several other post-modern confections integrated with the main story of the man's life and his country's struggle,” explains Wikitravel. Even so, it’s “one of the more informative museums in Vietnam, albeit with a high dose of personality cult and political propaganda.”
