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

Worth a visit if your about. Made me reflect on women's roles etc . Spent around two hours walking around. Not that interactive so maybe with kids not the best but if you read with them should be fine.

Excellent displays throughout this museum dedicated to the Vietnamese women. One area is dedicated to all the heroic women during the war. Another area is their fashions throughout the years. Also gives you an insight into their many diverse cultures and traditions.

A showcase of the critical role women played and continue to play in Vietnam. Not sure why this is so high on TA list however well worth visiting .

Moments in history that we all should know. If this place doesn't bring a tear to your eye, nothing will.

This and the Museum of Ethnology are unique and not to be missed on a trip to Hanoi. I look forward to taking my daughter again. The restaurant is a nice place to relax on the way out. My daughter loved the ice cream.
