“Reminds one of the ethnic groups in China”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

It is a small comprehensive museum depicting Vietnamese women & culture in the past. Rather interesting ethnic type clothes, but there's a kind of "moss" smell all around 3 floors!

“Touching - definitely worth an hour or two”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

Talked my husband into joining me for this visit, and we were both glad we went. It's a well organized exhibit and easy to navigate. We found the video clips to be very interesting and well done; the one about street vendors was particularly touching. These clips give a different perspective on the lives and customs and challenges and courage of the Vietnamese women. Worth spending an hour or two, for sure.

“Insightful museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

This was the first museum we visited in Hanoi and the one that made the strongest impression. We had planned to visit another nearby museum the same afternoon but were so enthralled by the Women's Museum we spent several hours there, no time for a second museum. The contribution women have made over the years to Vietnam's struggles is well documented.
