Rather average with more places to ask for your money than to show folk culture. The building is impressive and worth a look if you have a spare ticket on your city tour ticket.

It's a folklore museum. Big and long two story building. Old style old house. Many antiques inside. Can go up 2nd floor. Mid garden inside house. Can feel how they live in this house a little bit.

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.
