The museum is big but there's not so many things exhibited there. However the building is nice to visit and the surrounding area provides good atmosphere for a picnic.

There are 3 themes in this new and big museum: minorities, biodiversity and history. They are all very interesting if you like to know more about the region.

This is well worth a visit if you are in the area as the displays are well organised and give a good insight into the ethnic tribes way of life. It is better if you go with a guide who can fully explain things to you. There is a small shop where you can buy reasonably priced black and white... More

This museum is constructed along the lines of a traditional longhouse. The exhibits give an insight into the lives of the ethnic minority people of Vietnam. The displays are well laid out with descriptions also in English. There is just enough detail to sustain interest, one is not overloaded with information.

We easily spent an hour here reading about the local area, the minority villages, history, animals and agriculture. Good information in english and plenty of visuals. 20,000 entry fee is very reasonable.

I liked both the architecture of the new building and the content ! Of course, it is not the marvelous museum of the Minorities of Vietnam in Hanoi, but it is a nice effort definitely worth a visit

Nice museum with artifacts and detailed information to know more about the province. Recommended to anyone who is interested in history. Nice display. Plus big yard outside with lots of trees. You should check out the trees located at the other side. It is the biggest tree I have ever seen, branches spread everywhere.
