    It is the best Mall I've found in Hanoi to buy crafts and things ancient, especially textiles and objects of wood, with a wide range of products. Located near the old quarter of Hanoi, it is a narrow House and has several floors.

    Mark is full of knowledge and info. Really worth a visit, if only to look at the collection. That said, there are gorgeous pieces of art here, and the prices aren't too dear. Great place to find a keepsake.

    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.

    This is a rich experience that is purely dazzling. Beyond art. Into wonder. Stunning and educational.
