What I like about this is you get to see how different ethnic groups live traditionally. You go around the country and you might not see like this in real life nowadays. You see a lot of imported or industry building products which totally killed the real culture. Can't blame them as those are more readily available in market. Beside... More

There are bicyles and Horse carriage ready for rent in the park but we decided to take the truck buggy to give us a free & easy quick tour of the whole place. The park is extensively spread out with buildings and houses of 8 indigenous ethnic groups with display of artifacts, tools & furniture denoting various national native groups... More

This is a place that one should visit if you want to know more about the culture of the different states in Myanmar. Lots of different house designs, with different tribes of different states. Entrance fee is reasonable for a foreigner, 3000 kyat. Locals also visit this place, and even have picnic with their families near the lake.

A very pleasant visit in the park with an insight into the culture of Myanmar people. We went on a public holiday so quite busy and extra things such as entertainment was being performed on the stage. We saw many people in National dress. All very enjoyable.

This open air museum (or exhibition) tries to show the visitors life in different states of Myanmar. Copies of houses from different regions contains lot of artefacts from a daily life of villagers. Plus some artificially built mountains or a waterfall. Very popular is a renting of local national dress to visitors who make nice selfies afterwards. Additionally, there is... More

A visit to the National Races Villages is recommended. reasonable price, especially if a national. Right near the bridge. The park gives a great overview of the ethic groups of Burma and lists the tribes within each group. So visit each home. Begin by climbing the tower. Couldn't find any toilets. We did notice some yellow puddles to be careful... More

Not as detailed & informative as 1st World "Cultural Village/open air museum". Its a nice intro to the multicultural Myanmar. Rent an old bike to get around, see locals enjoy picnicking. The location is a bit out of city though. And every house have craft shop selling traditional costumes as well. And I got good time taking the 200 Kyat... More

About 30 mins by taxi from the city centre, the park gives a great overview of how different the people groups of Myanmar are. If you're in the least bit interested in Burmese culture, this is a great place to spend 2/3 hours. Different areas of the park have a traditional home from that particular state - all on stilts,...

Although promoted as one of the sights of Yangon, we found it to be only mildly interesting. It has a number of houses reconstructed to display the different ethnic groups of Myanmar, but we found there to be not a lot of difference to our western eyes. It was quite hot so we preferred to take shade where we could... More
