Amazing to see how many different peoples make up Vietnam.Would have been hard work without a guide though and ours pointed out things we just would not have noticed if we'd been on our own.

There are many tribes in Vietnam and this is a good place to understand the culture, costume, architecture and history of Vietnamese people. An informative and interesting place to visit, needs some walking and climbing too.

Modern museum with as much to see outside as indoors. Some of the interior English signage could be clearer, but we planned to spend 90 minutes and were captivated for 4 hours.

This museum is a must see attraction. It tells the history of all the 54 Vietnamese ethnic groups. You can learn about their clothes, music instruments, their language and their different houses. It is a lovely place to go!

Excellent displays, huge variety and very educational. Be sure to leave enough time to see everything. The outdoor exhibits are a treasure and the water puppet theater was charming.

Well worth a visit. I was a bit reluctant to go but a good variety of exhibits and explanations that grow on you. Worth going to as the visits to villages is now no longer authentic given the change in culture induced by the tourists.
