It's a good 30 minute walk around. You don't really need a guide as there are signs written on each artifact. Nice pieces of Hoi An culture and history, basically a general overview of the other places you will see around Hoi An.

This is one of the more interesting houses in the old town. Local family history and photos show the generations passing through. Next to the Japanese bridge it is easy to find.

If you want to experience a Vietnamese merchant's house just like it must have been 200 years ago you must visit this house. It only takes 20 minutes or so. Very nice wooden walls and ceilings. Goods for sale not too interesing. The house lies very centrally in the old town of Hoi An.

This museum is well worth a stop to learn more about local crafts and art styles. I was under the impression that this was ticketed as part of the Old Town ticket, however, no one checked and I was allowed to enter for free. The ground floor is dedicated to arts and crafts. When I went on a Sunday there... More

Its good to see the house plan to the right of the entrance to get your bearings. The house is on two main levels but with subtleties in level and space throughout. The main structure is dark timber, timber floors, walls and screens. The spaces are carefully divided into single, double height and outside space. Sort of Japanese style strictly... More

One of the place that I would recommend to those visiting Hoi An Ancient Town. This place has displayed some art works, Chinese calligraphy, music instruments, and cultural displays. Also, you can have very nice background for photo enthusiastic, the first floor with its wooden floor and wall, the courtyard, the plant etc.

The exhibits at the Museum of Folk History in Hoi an are a great representation of culture. They allow for a look into the past and at many of the tools used throughout the decades in Vietnam. It covers a large range of art, culture and everyday life from making clothing and fabric to farming and fishing. Altogether we enjoyed... More

From Outside it looks quite dull and uninteresting but once you step inside, the house/museum surprisingly very interesting and there are many things to look and learn from. There are few old silk machine which shows how people in those day made really good quality silk. There are few more historical part in this house. Do head up to the... More
