the museum map and tour is obvious, you can4t miss it.

exhibits are well explained and sufficiently motivated with example, DVD, graphics.

also the garden with re production of some minority houses is amusing.

you can choose your own pace, min 2 hours - could spend half a day and have a drink in the resto

It was interesting to immerse ourselves in the local culture. Excellent coffee shop there was well with unreal hot chocolate. We spent about four hours at the location and really enjoyed it. Recommend it to visitors as it gives one a better understanding of life in Vietnam.

Many diverse peoples populate Vietnam. If you want to know about them, this is the place to go. Two floors inside and an outside area also. We caught a water puppet show here!

This is a very nice way to see high-quality exhibits in a short period of time. We recommend a guide to explain all the exhibits so that full value is delivered. Soon a new museum of ethnology will be open next door, but for now the current museum is a nice way to learn about the 16% of Vietnam not represented by the dominant ethnic group, the Viet.

We were very pleasantly surprised by our visit to this museum. The display of different tribal groups and activities was done extremely well and the real houses they brought into the park to get the full life size feel of things was great. As a bonus they have one of the best little gift shops in Hanoi with some very high quality merchandise.
