“Not much of a museum; don't go out of your way”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This place is small and worn down. The museum is mostly old pictures, some artifacts and a cannon. I wouldn't go out of your way to visit here. At least the adjoining pagoda is nice.The only real point of interest for me were the old maps from Colonial times, but even these were dusty and poorly maintained

“A bit tired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The museum is set in a lovely old building, but the displays and written explanations are a bit tired and dusty and in need off a good clean up. A peaceful spot to spend half an hour.

“Very small, not recommended to go solo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

I think it would have been better if I were part of a tour group. It's filled with artifacts, but small placards that don't do it much justice. Other groups had tour guides, but I was reluctant to join because I didn't know if these were hired private guides and I would be imposing.

“good place to learn about Hoi An”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Good place to learn about Hoi An. Take about an hour to look through slowly all the stuff. There is even an early 19th century map by the British on the region!

“Brief but informative”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

A nice quick overview of the towns history, set in a beautiful old building. If you have a spare 15 minutes then why not.
