This's a great museum to go to find out about the various countries in Vietnam. It certainly saves time and also money touring all over Vietnam to find out the homes and handiwork that this particular museum features. We especially appreciated the houses where you are able to climb in and then walk around. It's some authentic and also adventurous feel about it. There was a few of houses we opted out of climbing since the ladders had stiletto rungs. We'd suggest visiting it all by yourself instead of in a tour set since then you are able to really explore. As it was, we just had an hour, and that's certainly not sufficient. We recommend aproximatelly three hours. We had taken out a star since, for a cultural treasure that way, the federal government has to secure its management and complete the brand new structure which was under construction

If the subject matter sounds interesting, you will like this. Lots of products and tools from the 54 different ethnicities in Vietnam. Outdoor house exhibits were the most interesting.

We enjoyed a couple of hours at this museum learning about the different groups of people living in Vietnam. It was very informative in an interactive way and it was most interesting to see the different types of dwelling places. I would highly recommend a visit.
