This is such an interesting place with inside exhibits in quite a modern building and an outside display of various buildings that you can go inside. It shows how various people lived in Vietnam.

Came as part of a day tour but you could spend hours here to see things properly. Loved looking through the different style of housing in the outside area. All exhibitions are well presented and informative about early life and history of the Vietnamese people.
