Definitely worth a visit; the Museum is divided into years and slices of a Woman's Vietnamese life. Marriage and children, a wonderful section of Women's dress from different provinces, Women in the Wars.

A great reminder of the country's history and the role women played. It's is air conditioned and has fans to cool you further. Worth a look.

It is a good collection of women cultural and historical facts throughout the country in diverse years. The cover fee is about two US dollars. It should take one hour to visit it.

This place is amazing. A tribute to the women of Vietnam and their contribution to society and the various wars over the centuries .

This museum shows that women have had very big roles to play in Vietnamese history. Vietnam has had a very progressive attitude to women’s roles and power from a very early date. Far ahead of their western counterparts. Even some areas of Vietnam are matrilineal....More

2-3 hours. The nice thing about the audio guide is you enter the number for the display you want to hear about. Two of the floors we listened to almost all of the audio guide the last floor we listened to maybe one or two.

Yes it does. Make sure for the little extra you do the audio as it is well worth listening to the stories.
