this place is awesome!!! People can learn about many ethnics in Vietnam. They have many strange and interesting and unique custom. Cant believe it ^^. Very informative insights to the culture and traditional values of the different ethnic groups in Hanoi. There are a lot of English explanations, so you don't need a guide but if you want to know about the stories behind those amazzing thing showed there you should have one guide ^^. i walked around and took a lot of photoss outside the House.

Vietnam has 54 different ethnic groups all of which have been allowed to maintain their identity in this culturally diverse country. This is good museum which gives you a chance to see how some of the groups live in various areas. excellent visit
