Hard to find, right at the back of the tourist information complex up a flight or two of stone steps.
A small collection of exhibits with displays with photos with captions, in Vietnamese, French and English although the English translation is incomplete in some cases. Some of the old maps are poorly reproduced and illegible.
It's worth a look if the weather acts up and it's free.

We went in primarily to escape the rain, and actually the museum was really interesting - lots of information about the local tribes with boards in English, French and Vietnamese. Well worth a look before exploring the area to gain a better understanding of the tribes and their culture.

We were brought here by our guide on day 2. Since we had done some trekking to see villages of the Red Dao and Blue Hmong, we could appreciate more of the the information presented here. Nice gift shop located here too which show cases some decent craft.

A very good small museum with lots of newish photo info boards showing lots of info on the local groups who live around the area. Clothing, artifacts etc - the embroidery and clothe preparation areas particularly good. There is a large gift shop on the ground floor, and most of it looks really good even to my untutored eyes. As to prices, it depends I guess on what your comparison is, and your budget.

We went there with a group of local students and it was an interesting place. We already knew a lot about ethnic groups in the past and now in Sapa: their traditions, culture and locations. There were good maps. In addition we were amazed about the information about the daily life of local people. We knew a lot but we would recommend it for tourists to come to Sapa Museum and explore it. The museum helps them to have a better understanding of people and culture in Sapa.

Very small museum, but good exhibitions. very interesting to learn about the local people. Doesn't take long, and free entry, so well worth a visit if you have the time.

One of the best museums I’ve seen in Southeast Asia. Offers a lot of well-translated (English and French) displays about the SaPa town development, and more interestingly about the culture of the various tribes that inhabit this area. Lots of interesting cultural items on display too.
Best of all entrance is free, and there’s a fantastic little shop selling hand made local arts like table placemats, coasters, men’s ties, etc.
Definitely worth a 45 minute visit.

This museum is relatively small and its exhibits don’t compare to those at the Museum of Ethnology in Hanoi. Yet, this museum gives you a nice overview of the ethnic people in the Sapa area, their customs, clothing, village life, and the exhibits are attractively presented.

Easily located up a few stairs near the center of town, this no-cost museum is worth a quick visit.

And, their gift shop offers a wonderful array of handmade ethnic crafts at reasonable prices.
