It is located in Old Quarter area, about 10 minutes walk from Hoan Kiam Lake. The contemporary designed building is really catchy along the street dominated by the buildings from French Colonial Era. We were guided by HanoiKids, so we had no problem to reach...More

Very interesting museum, it gives a very clear explanation about the situation of Vietnemese women over the years. Audiotour is possible, but it’s also told on short notes all through the museum. It makes you think different about the street vendors, because these women are...More

Did a couple of museums and came here last. It's a cut above the rest, more modern and well laid out. I particularly enjoyed the women in the war section. If you only do one, do this.

That's one of the few museums I encountered in Asia that has extensive explanations for its displays and gave a lot of background information. It was a bit sad to read about women's life because it showed Vietnam is mostly a patriarchaic society even though...More

2-3 hours. The nice thing about the audio guide is you enter the number for the display you want to hear about. Two of the floors we listened to almost all of the audio guide the last floor we listened to maybe one or two.

Yes it does. Make sure for the little extra you do the audio as it is well worth listening to the stories.
