A really interesting introduction to Hanoi's history and heritage.
Displays and signage, excellent. Easy to read and English was good.
Staff very helpful. The first time we went my camera battery failed and the spare was 'flat'. Went back the next day and staff remembered us and refused second entry payment as we had already been there!

The Ancient House provides a window into the life of family living and running a hoe-based business in ancient Hoian. The innovative construction on marble foundations provides the double protection from wood borers as well as floods which are a regular occurrence in this riverside town.

I loved the ancient house, it showed how a wealthy family may have lived. The design was gorgeous for such a small area of land. Only cost 10,000 entry.

Love this place! right on one of the main streets in old quarter - this little gem give a nice view of how Vietnamese life in the city was like long ago - the house is beautifully restored and is a classic shop house with a central atrium. Highly recommended
