Every city’s got one, an homage point for Vietnam’s national hero, and this one is actually kind of interesting. In a large rotunda on the road heading from the new town toward the train station, the Ho Chi Minh Museum in Hue is the usual collection of photos and memorabilia telling the story of Ho’s early life of poverty in Vinh, here with a stress on the years he spent in Hue during his father’s tenure in the university. There are images and a reproduction of the boat he sailed on as a galley hand, as well as a unique picture of Ho working in the kitchen of the Castleton Hotel in London in 1914, a time when his ideas about Marxism and revolution began to flower. The museum tells the history of Hue, from capital to revolution and the aftermath, in photos. Also find some interesting political cartoons parodying French rule, as well as extensive copies and basic translations of Ho’s writings — the likes of the 8 Requirements of Society, which Ho presented at the Versailles Conference in Paris in 1919
