Be prepared to see another perspective on the Vietnam War than an American side. Real planes, vehicles and POW camp set up too.

This was well worth the visit. You must have a guided tour again for this one again, or you will learn nothing. The Museum is very good. You will see how they lived, there clothing, there musical instruments, there weaving and many more. You are not aloud to take photos inside though. Our guide told us how the chinese stole there Island, and there fishing grounds and that there was nothing they could do to stop them. Terrible Terrible but typical of them. Take time to look around the grounds. It is well worth it.

The VIP tickets had been worthwhile in a couple of rows. You will find 3 price categories based on just how near the front side you sit. We paid additional to sit down on the front row and Im happy we did. A beautiful small story all completed in Vietnamese with standard songs, musical instruments, and a few rather amazing puppets. the car seats had been comfortable and additionally the theatre was comfortably cool. It was neither too loud or insanely dark in the theatre therefore pleasant. It was pleasant to see old Vietnamese tradition also I'd certainly suggest it for almost all.

Great Museum

Really well maintained, 100K VND per person admission fee is completely worthwhile. Great group of Vietnamese and world ethnological artifacts. The primary appeal is definitely the various types of full scale Vietnamese houses of many cultural groups recreated here.

A great way to invest an interesting and quiet working day, a visit here's top class. Within the building, good is an insight into the various ethnicities in Vietnam with pictures, exhibits & accounts from all around the nation. Outside in the rich gardens are authentic houses transplanted from the districts of theirs of origin from different organizations, as well as incredible houses they're!! You are able to walk through and check out. Take a look at the home aproximatelly six x stories high! What about the grounds sits Hoa Sua school/cafe...where disadvantaged children are instructed about you're in hospitality. And also the goat's cheese spring rolls with apple slivers and also Sapa honey had been the nectar of the gods!

This particular museum is crucial to completely grasp the story of Vietnamese culture and the employees of its. The displays inside are attractively simple to learn. The structures outside enable site visitors going inside and value the historic period of time.

Thorough, thorough, and nicely laid out, with English descriptions. I thought it offered a fantastic introduction to the elaborate country which is Vietnam.
