The museum is housed in a modern building, with air conditioning and great upkeep. The museum is interesting, although not really entertaining. Art exhibit on the top floor is really nice.

Very interesting museum. The exhibition is of excellent quality. If you have the time in Hanoi and also need some time away from the traffic, then go here and learn more about Vietnam.

This is a very interesting museum if you want to learn more about Vietnam and the women of Vietnam. Each floor has a different emphasis and all of the floors were interesting.

This is a really interesting place to visit. Parts were shocking when you realise what the conditions were like and the lives the prisoners led.

We spent 2-3 hours in this museum but it deserves more time. The video interviews of many of the women you see in the street gives great insight in Vietnamese culture. We were very surprised at the involvement of women in the military dating back thousands of years. The marriage traditions were also interesting. Take the time and see this.
