  • We stayed 2 hours only at that really fascinating museum, however we had been exhausted after learning a lot. It's extremely well done. What would Vietnam be without the work of the females? It was...  more »
  • I enjoyed the museum and would've liked having much more time to invest there. I did the audio tour that had been extremely useful as well as fascinating. A must see in Hanoi!  more »

  • I quite enjoyed this museum! It's interesting and diverse, but small enough that you can reasonably see all the exhibits. It presents Vietnamese culture and history through a focus on women's experiences and roles, and would be interesting for anyone. It has a good balance of displays/artifacts and contextualizing information.
  • This museum is extremely well done. It shows the history of women in Vietnam, including marriage practices, their role in the war(s), fashion, and home life. There is also an art exhibit on the top floor that I believe rotates. There are features throughout the museum highlighting Vietnam women who have achieved greatness. If you have time, this is a spot to see.
  • Great experience. Small space but a lot of interesting information and beautiful artifacts. I particularly loved the jewelry and textiles from around the country. A wonderful place to spend a few hours to learn about the remarkable women of Vietnam.
  • Could be so much better particularly the poor hospitality. Everyone on their phones ignoring visitors. After nearly 3 years of seeing I don’t feel bad saying it’s tiresome! The whole place is dated with zero interactivity just lots of videos. The best part are the textiles shown here.
  • I highly recommend going to this museum, and definitely recommend paying a little extra for the audio recording because it makes that much of a difference, give yourself around 2-3 hours for this museum as there is a lot of see and read! I thoroughly enjoyed my experience going to the women's museum as you get to see a side of history that you don't really hear much about.
