  • Given the rich cultural history of Hoi An, I had high hopes for this museum. Sadly I think you could get more information from the Wikipedia page. It seems as if it hasn't been touched since it was op...  more »
  • Small museum in Ancient town. Has a few sort of interesting exhibits and a few artifacts by far NOT a must see. 
  • (Average score) A small museum area but includes some good and informative exhibition on the history and cultural heritage of Hoi An and the surrounding area. In the Museum also has exhibitions on the war against the United States of America

  • Nice museum. Some historical pieces. Also the cafe on the top offers a really nice view on the city and the area around!
  • Nice cafe on the top floor for a great view of the ancient town. Sip some VNese ice coffee and enjoy the view.
  • Really basic museum. Most exhibitions don't have English descriptions. The war exhibition is kind of nice and the rooftop cafe has some good views.
  • Probably the smallest museum I've ever been to. The contents are interesting, but even if you're going through it slowly and thoroughly, there's only really enough for a twenty minute visit.
  • The 5 stars are for the cafe/bar on the top floor with amazing views of the city. Small but interesting museum (history and art), as much of the building is offices.
