An eye opener to the diversity of Vietnam and some important historical events. Probably about 3 hours is required to get an understanding.

We arrived at the museum just 30 minutes before closing time. Our guide suggested seeing just the outside displays, so that was our focus. And wow! Fascinating building from the Cham dynasty, on stilts and architecturally unique.

Even with such a short time, the visit was worthwhile and I recommend--would love to have had more time to see the inside as well.

This place really surprised me - not just the main museum, but around the back they had examples of the different types of traditional houses, etc., which was very interesting and fun. Highly recommend!

Lovely museum featuring cultures not only from the ethnic minorities in Vietnam but also other countries. Loads of kids around and they seem to enjoy it too. I like the garden more than the indoor exhibitions as there are a lot of re-creation of architectures from the rural villages and visitors could step inside to experience them.

Be prepared to see another perspective on the Vietnam War than an American side. Real planes, vehicles and POW camp set up too.

This was well worth the visit. You must have a guided tour again for this one again, or you will learn nothing. The Museum is very good. You will see how they lived, there clothing, there musical instruments, there weaving and many more. You are not aloud to take photos inside though. Our guide told us how the chinese stole there Island, and there fishing grounds and that there was nothing they could do to stop them. Terrible Terrible but typical of them. Take time to look around the grounds. It is well worth it.

The VIP tickets had been worthwhile in a couple of rows. You will find 3 price categories based on just how near the front side you sit. We paid additional to sit down on the front row and Im happy we did. A beautiful small story all completed in Vietnamese with standard songs, musical instruments, and a few rather amazing puppets. the car seats had been comfortable and additionally the theatre was comfortably cool. It was neither too loud or insanely dark in the theatre therefore pleasant. It was pleasant to see old Vietnamese tradition also I'd certainly suggest it for almost all.

Really well maintained, 100K VND per person admission fee is completely worthwhile. Great group of Vietnamese and world ethnological artifacts. The primary appeal is definitely the various types of full scale Vietnamese houses of many cultural groups recreated here.
