“A must see museum in Hanoi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

If you really want to get an understanding of the peoples of Vietnam then this museum is the place to go. I thought we would spend a couple of hours there and five hours later..... Very informative and interesting displays and videos of the many groups of people who make up the Vietnamese, most notably the minority groups. The museum is a little far from the Old Quarter so make sure you agree a price first for the taxi.

“My favourist place in Hanoi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

That is a great place, I like to enjoy my weekend to stay at Ede's home and read book, really fun, esp in summer!. Especially at weekend, there are a lot of children come here and play traditional game, you can join with them, or some time if luckily you can listen to "Ca tru" and watch water puppet here. Recomend you to visit here when you are in Hanoi :)

“Wonderful and enlightening experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

A great opportunity to learn a little more about the people of Vietnam. We were shown around by members of Hanoi Kids and that made it even more special.
