“If you can only see one museum in Hanoi...”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Experience this one. You can explore the village and mountain life, all without leaving Hanoi. The exhibits are interesting and in English. An afternoon spent here is kinda of like Vietnamese Culture, 101.

“Suprisingly good”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

There are a lot of English explanations, so you don't need a guide. The outdoor exhibition is very neat, bring some time to walk around.
