Woman life there differs from ours. Beautiful clothes, brave young ladies who started revolutionary activity in age 9 or 11, and were executed in age of 18th

It's not the best museum I've ever been to but at $1.20 and an hour of your time it's worth a look to understand and appreciate how tough Vietnamese women's lives were and still are. Lots of pictures and costumes of the tribes as well as a section on women in the war. Worth a visit if you have time... More

I had high hopes for this museum due to it's high ratings on TA. I'm a reader and I love learning new things but I found this to be boring and lacking any exciting information. The women in war display was probably the most interesting but the rest I could take or leave. The museum is well set out though... More

This museum is well worth a visit and a really good complement to the Museum of Ethnology. There is interesting AV material and a wide range of displays.

The most amazing collection of traditional and modern women's clothing to rival the New York Met in beauty. The tradition ethnic and aodai are represented but then there are innovative designs I would wear and treasure! I found great design both in fashion and fabrics in Vietnam and that should be an exhibit. It has two floors illustrating women's lives... More

The exhibits are well curated and focus well on the Vietnamese women: how they work and get married. My favorite is the top most exhibit with a collection of the amazing traditional dresses. Because of this, I bought myself a hand made skirt with a batik print!

The museum was okay. It told about the lifestyle of traditional Vietnamese women, and their roles in everyday life and during wartime. It is worth a look if you are in the area.

We went to a number of museums in Hanoi and this museum was one of the best. The design of the displays were simple yet beautiful and the organization of the information (fashion, history, family life, etc.) made it easy to walk through and get a glimpse of the Vietnamese women's roles in society, both past and present.

We were interested to see what this museum had to offer as so many positive reviews were on TripAdvisor, but we were both quite disappointed. We weren't pulled in by any of the exhibits and would have skipped it had we known what we know now. We really hope that it can evolve into something wonderful in the future, but... More
