Covers a lot of different aspects of Vietnamese women's life. Not huge, but quite varied. Also great just to see a museum centered around women! Worth a visit.

Many of the museums have awkwardly translated signage, but this one was good. It has 3 floors of exhibits and the displays are interesting - the ones about marriage and childbirth really stood out.

One of the best museums I have visited. There is a floor dedicated to women who participated in the recent wars, against the French and Americans both.
