  • This is the most ancient street in the capital city, with many French-style buildings, foreign embassies, hotels and government offices. The museum opened to public in 1995 and had been renovated between 2006 and 2010. This Museum is dedicated to the Vietnamese Women. More than 1000 materials, photos and objects displayed in the permanent exhibition show the role the Vietnamese women played in the History and currently play in Arts and in the Family life. The museum also organizes thematic exhibitions to show changes and development of the contemporary society.
  • Good museum with interested about Vietnam culture. I like that they collact many dress on the minority which look amazing for me. reasonable entrance fee. Must visit.
  • Women should always be acknowledged for existing in a society. Every country should have one.
  • Interesting perspective, and a good place to learn more about Vietnam's culture. The displays include traditions of some ethnic minorities. Good price as well.
  • An absolute must. The Women's Museum was one of the highlights of my time in Hanoi, exploring the roles and activities of women in Vietnam's various diverse ethnic groups. Make sure you set aside a couple of hours in order to fully explore the exhibits. Of particular interest for me was the level on women in combat, as well as the special exhibit on Mother Goddess worship in Vietnam.
