Fascinating history

Must take a couple of hours to see the history of this country's women, it's well worth a visit to see how they coped with the difficulties they had to endure.

The first thing to impress me was the quality and presentation of the information and exhibits. Very slick by Vietnamese standards! Each floor of the museum focuses on a different aspect of Vietnamese women. I particularly enjoyed the ones about the clothing of different ethnic minorities and the videos explaining the day to day struggle for the hundreds of mobile... More

We spent three hours here. We got the headsets and roamed the three floors, listening to first hand accounts of events. Well conceived and presented. Very informative.

A must visit for those interested in learning about the History of Vietnam and Vietnamese women. Very organized, contained and easy to navigate. The entrance fee is nominal and they also have student rates.

Good idea for a museum to appreciate Vietnamese women from the old days up to now. However, this museum has fewer things to show me than I expected. There was no one to introduce basically about the museum at least. I hope it will be better when I come here in the next time.

This gives you a view of how hard the Vietnamese women work to get by and what they go through. It is well worth a visit

If you go to this museum give yourself time. It is well worth doing but does take at least 2.5 hours. It gives you an insight to the culture and background to the main and an understanding between the different tribes. You understand the major rule played by women I their society. Highly recommended.

There are quite good expositions but I could still feel the propaganda in some of them. Interesting for those longing to know a little bit about the role of a women in different vietnamese's tribes.

There is a fair amount to see here. I enjoyed the too short section on women's role during the Vietnam War.
