“high recommended visitting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Vietnam Museum of Ethnology is one of the most interesting museum in Hanoi. It is where you can have a full image of 54 ethnic groups in Vietnam. Each group contains different characteristic to be distinguished with others. I'm really impressed with the variety of culture in Vietnam. besides, on some special occasions there are many traditional games held there for visitors to try. You can enjoy how ethnic people life.

“Shows you life as it is in Minority areas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Short of going to the Minority Villages, this museum gives a good view of the life styles, culture, textiles of these peoples. Definitely worth a visit.

“Good museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Good presentation of the people and culture of Vietnam. Our children were adopted from Vietnam. It was good for them to see samples of what might have been their lives.

“Allow plenty of time -- much to explore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

This museum does an excellent job of presenting the cultures of many ethnic groups of Vietnam. Ceremonies and costumes are well-depicted. Behind the main museum are a variety of typical houses with explanations in English. Definitely worth a visit!

“Great for children”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Really interesting museum. Well set out and my children enjoyed it as well as getting a great deal out of it. Helped reinforce what we'd started to see and learn on a trip to the mountains a few days earlier.
