  • This place really surprised me - not just the main museum, but around the back they had examples of the different types of traditional houses, etc., which was very interesting and fun. Highly...

  • Start outdoors to visit the ethnic homes. A must-see in VN.
  • Last time I visited was 10 years ago but this was one of the most interesting and informative museums I’ve been to in Vietnam. This time I took a cab to there from Old Quaters only to find out they only open on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Wasted 1 hour and apparently a lot of people were confused about the time too because there is no update online.
