If you are traveling with a French guidebook, this is a must see stop. Rehahn is a French photographer with a gallery in Hoi An and also in Ho Chi Minh City. You can purchase his books, various prints of his amazing pictures or put down some serious money for originals. Those are printed on a special metal support and processed in Germany then sent to you by mail. They are limited edition and costs can vary greatly. They are pricey but you are buying art. I was super tempted but it is an investment. The gallery has images from Vietnam but also from Cuba. It's worth a visit, even if you go away with impressions or a post card and not an original art piece.

My friend and I were on a bike tour of the city. This was the second last stop, but unfortunately the tour only stopped for 15-20 minutes. My friend and I were so taken by the museum/art gallery that we left the tour to spend a further hour there. It is incredible to see the lengths Rehahn has gone to to document and preserve the precious and fragile remaining traditional garments from documented (and undocumented) Vietnamese ethnic groups. The photographs he takes and how he writes about his experience was beyond moving. Highly, highly recommend this gallery for anyone wanting to gain a deeper understanding of traditional Vietnamese culture and reflect on our changing world.

A beautiful Museum showing the amazing work of Mr.Rehanh about all the minorities and ethnics in Vietnam. We learnt a lot about all of them, their traditions, and the beautiful traditional clothes exposed in the museum. We enjoyed a lot the photo studio too, with amazing pictures. And we even had the chance to meet Mr. Réhahn, who told us a lot about the "backstage stories" and how the photo collections work. Very interesting, and must visit in Hoi An!

This museum was overwhelming! The photographer Rehahn has made the most fantastic collection of dresses from all the 54 different tribes of Vietnam.
Every single one comes with a historie of the tribe and the woman (mostly) he got the dress from. Rehanh spent 8 years on this project, and some of the dresses are nearly disappeared in the tribes, so luckily he can document and show them to the world here. It is so interesting!
Att the museum, which is situated in a beautifull building, you can also enjoy a lot of his great photographs.
Money from the sale goes back to the people he has photographed.
Entrance is free.
I think this place was the most interesting thing we have been to in Hoi An!
Absolutely a must see.

We met some other travelers who recommended this place to us and we checked it out. We really enjoyed our visit. Entrance is free and there are photo's, traditional clothing and stories to read about them inside. The photos are beautiful and the stories are interesting and sometimes moving or funny. This was a great way to learn more about the people and culture in Vietnam. The postcards we bought were packed in plastic so they would be protected in our luggage. I would defenitly recommend it to other travelers as well.

This is a truly unique exhibit from many cities that I have visited. You are left feeling a deeper understanding of the cultural tapestry that makes this country so beautiful. Rehanh has captured the souls of these people in an authentic way, but what’s more commendable is his evident relationship and community building that lies at the heart of his work. Preservation in a visually stimulating modality - where fine art gallery meets an educational experience, with more energy than a typical museum.

This is so worth a visit - the display of photographs by Rehahn of the people of Vietnam (some also South America, Cuba, India) is breathtaking in their quality, clarity and composition. Best photographic exhibition I’ve been to, the descriptions alongside the photos into the people and the tribes are so good.
Added to this is the free museum of tribal Vietnamese costumes which is so very interesting including narratives of how he got to these very remote areas.
Rehahn’s philosophy of how he comes alongside these people and how much he enjoys engaging with them to help maintain a record of their heritage is moving.
Needless to say I couldn’t resist buying some fantastic Photos!

Amidst all of the shopping and restaurants and historical sites in Hoi An, the one place you simply MUST go is the Precious Heritage Museum. The history of indigenous tribes of Vietnam told through their heritage dress is breathtaking. Beautiful, fascinating and wonderfully presented. Rehahn's photography is just the start of the journey -- the actual costumes and description puts you in touch with Vietnam's history like no other way. We came for an hour and will go back for more.

This museum is a labour of love of the french photo artist Rehahn. We wouldn’t have known about it if we hadn’t wandered into a gallery of his, whilst trying to escape the tourists and hawkers in the ancient town. His gallerist was a talented and wonderful young woman who encouraged us to go on and visit this place.

It is a collection of the most interesting and stunning costume heritage of Vietnam. The exhibition is beautifully set up and the explanations are well done and give real insight to the history behind the costumes and the traditions involved in producing them.

Rehahn is doing a fantastic job of preserving these legacies, whilst simultaneously trying to give back to these remote tribes whenever he can.

Highly recommended.

Simply beautiful. Well worth visiting Hoi An just to experience this gallery and its story. Utterly fabulous photographs tell the story of Rehahn’s project with the ethnic tribes of Vietnam. He has cultured a very special bond with the tribes which has allowed him to portray their people in the most wonderful way through both his photos and his collection and preservation of their individual traditional tribal costumes. The museum us beautifully laid out, there are explanatory narratives accompanying each photo and costume and the delightful ladies who work in the museum are a further font of knowledge. You can buy signed copies of the photo, a beautiful book, postcards etc. All in all a truly wonderful and very special place - not to be missed.
