Gives a good description of life in Vietnam for women through the years . It offers a nice tribute to the women and the role they played during different generations.

We were looking for something to kill time one morning. Stopped here because it was free. Was actually very impressed. There is a lot of history in this building. Did I mention it's free?

Nothing special w/ this museum except the theme, which is about feminism. It's theme is so rare, but the setting is less attractive.

At first I thought there wouldn't be much to see but I was wrong. There were a lot of intersting things in this museum, especially different types of traditional dress of women from over Vietnam.
