  • This is such an amazing place! Lovely just to wander around and look at. Everything is meticulously labelled, with dates and information. I wanted to buy something, but it was a bit beyond my budget.....  more

  • We went inside just for curiosity but thanks to the owner we've had a proper history lesson: like a museum guide he explained us the meaning of his collection room after room in a very clear and interesting way. A big thanks, worth the visit if you are in the area. Bear in mind: this place is like a museum; don't be surprise to the (overall) high price of the items exposed. If you are looking for a souvenir, this is not the place; rather, if you want to get something original and authentic with a real story behind, go and have a look: you will find what you need.
  • If you are looking for a memorable artifact from your trip to Vietnam and aren't into all the Chinese-made knickknacks in the tourist traps around the Old Quarter, then this is your place. These are verified, authentically cultural artifacts with a knowledgeable team that can explain each item to you in depth. The place is worth a visit even if you just want schooled on the cultural diversity of the region. Worth a visit.
  • Marc is a font of knowledge on all the artwork he has collected and the minority communities that produced them. Somewhere between a gallery, museum and antique shop and absolutely can not be missed if you’re in Hanoi. Thank you for your hospitality and generously sharing knowledge / info!
  • Great place to visit if youre into collecting historical items. This gallery features vintage items from all the 54 tribes of Vietnam which you can purchase. They arent considered national treasures so you can take them outside the country .its a 3 Storied building in the old quarter with no wheel chair access. We got some souvenirs which was nice. Worth a visit.
  • A little 4 storey house as a museum of cultural indeed. Lots of historical ancient things. The lady offered us a quick 15 minutes of free interesting tour listening to the historical facts of the those ancient stuff. Thank you!!
