The museum was extremely useful and well presented. I truly liked the traditional structure exhibit within the grounds. Great to find out the ethnic community of Vietnam has been preserved for generations to come to find out about. Great value.

Grab the audio guide to hear the history and make sure you don’t miss going out the back to see the houses. The puppet show is worth seeing too.

I'm not a history person, but I enjoyed my visit to this museum. It was amazing to see 54 different ethnic groups in a country this size. The outdoor homes were fun, we especially liked the one where you had to climb up to see.

We spent half one day right here with the young kids of ours and they'd a great time exploring all of the product homes and trying out the video games in the grounds. In case you love museums I endorse this one.
