  • So glad we made the effort to go. 30,000 dong entry per person plus a bit more of you wanted an audio set which I recommend you get. Very well laid out museum. Great displays and artefacts. Amazing to...  more »

  • Worth a brief visit. Should only take an hour. Not worth paying twice the entrance fee by paying for a headset tour. The headset audio did not add interesting info. Each artifact already had good English descriptions.
  • A museum focused on telling the stories about the everyday lives of Vietnamese women of all ethnicities. Ample captions in English and French, so you'd do fine wandering through the museum without an audio guide (which you can rent for 30,000 VND). Entrance ticket is 30,000 VND per person and is well worth the price. I especially enjoyed the exhibit showcasing the different wedding customs of the different ethnic groups!
  • If you want to learn about the culture and lifestyle of the many ethnicities in Vietnam, this museum is definitely worth visiting. Everything is translated in English and in French. However I would not recommend the audio guide as it does not provide more info than the exhibits and it costs as much as the entrance fee.
  • A unique museum, showing the life and culture of Vietnamese women from many different ethnic groups. Looks at history, economy, religion, fashion, and culture. Great for people of various interests! It's well put together and easy to follow, in English or Vietnamese. A good way to spend a couple hours!
  • A must do! They give you the option of doing an audio tour throughout the museum and I would definitely recommend spending a little bit extra for it (60,000 dong with audio tour, 30,000 without). I left the history section choking back tears and with huge respect for the women.
