Must be one of the most interesting Museum !Don't miss it!
You'll need at least 3 hours to see it all , pictures , pottery , water puppet shows , original homes of minorities .... just beautiful and very interesting. I would suggest to reserve a guide in advance or go very early to be sure to get a guide.Don't miss it it's really really good.

Located about 25 minutes by taxi outside the old quarter this museum is definitely worth a visit if you are interested in this field. The outside exhibits are also interesting to wander around. Signs were in Vietnamese, French and English.

It's my favorite museum. It illustrates the different culture of ethnic groups in Vietnam.
I am very happy to be a volunteer here each summer.
If you travel with family, you should take your child come here. They will feel excited and understand more about Vietnam's culture.

This is a really well planned and interesting and educational museum. It has reconstructions of type of long houses, tall houses and other village structures in the gardens and inside you get a very good sense of the ethnic diversity of the country. There are maps of language areas, tribal areas, displays of some amazing traditional crafts and when I went a fabulously displayed exhibition of photos taken in the 1950s. This is a well-thought out museum. Good for kids and adults. Takes about two hours to do and there's a nice cafe there too, which trains kids from disadvantaged homes (well more disadvantaged than most I imagine). Takes about 20m to get to from Old Quarter and costs about 100k dong. I found this a much better museum than the army museum for instance, which really is a middling experience for anyone interested in the Vietnam war.
