“An interesting museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Housed in what is apparently the largest wooden double-storey building in the Old Town, the Hoi An Folklore Museum was an interesting place to escape from the wet weather downpours. Although apparently the flood had covered the whole ground floor last week! I don't envy the guys who have to move everything upstairs and back every time the weather is bad!

The museum was divided into a few different galleries that depicted traditional life, craft, work, and pastimes in Hoi An. Some of the exhibits seemed a bit dated, but I honestly felt that it still fitting nicely with the whole vibe of the old town! Anything super-modern or technological would seem badly out of place here.

The ticketing system was a little annoying, though - I had to go find one of the ticket offices down the road, which sells a 120k dong ticket that gets you into five different cultural sites in the old town.

But if you're interested in the traditional culture and lifestyle in Hoi An, this museum is definitely the best out of the four museums in the old town.

“Children found it interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

My kids liked it.
Must buy ticket before entering. One ticket allows you enter 3 places òf interest and as usual, children are free.
