“A wonderful museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

I prefer the French name, Musee des Femmes du Vietnam. The displays are well thought out, the heroines of the struggle against the French and America is the best part for me, and the tribal stuff is very good too, the marriage section was interesting but the ante-natal section left me cold.

“Interesting Place in city center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

The museum has been renovated and reopened while ago. I got chance to visit the exhibition of Women closet of all time in all over the country and it was fantastic. An interesting spot to learn more about the people of this country.

“Cultural understanding of a different kind”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

Parts of this museum were extremely informative and emotive, and really solidified a semi-understanding of the resilience of the Vietnamese spirit. These women are role models for everyone.
Admittedly though, some sections of the museum were superficially boring (parts that did not relate to history or culture) and not worth the effort.
All in all though, if you have time to spare in Hanoi I would recommend the Women's Museum, for the traveller in search of more than what they can see on the street.

“well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Well worth a visit. Close to the old quater an easy walk or a short taxi ride. This museum takes you on a journey of the important role the vietnames woman has, and what influance they have had in history.
