In 1994, Ca Mau Province built the Uncle Ho memorial site with a house on stilts according to the prototype of President Ho Chi Minh's house on stilts in Hanoi. Over time, the construction was degraded. Therefore, in 2011, Ca Mau Province restored and embellished Uncle Ho's memorial area on a large scale, on an area of about 6.7 hectares. In early January 2014, the construction was inaugurated and officially put it into use, serving domestic and foreign tourists.

The space of the traditional house

Inaugurated in 1995 on the occasion of President Ho Chi Minh’s 105th birthday, Uncle Ho’s house on stilts was recreated according to the prototype of Uncle Ho's house on stilts in Hanoi.

Along the entrance to Uncle Ho's worshipping locations, there are many reliefs depicting his life, revolutionary career and events related to him.

Ca Mau students come to visit and participate in traditional activities at the memorial area.

At this location, the Ca Mau Provincial Museum regularly organizes exhibitions and displays to serve visitors.
