We delved into marriage and the customs surrounding this. Then child birth. One small tribe pour dogs blood over their stomachs to ward off evil spirits. Many use amulets and silver. Exploration took us to the myth or belief of Mother Goddess and the four princesses; fire, water, earth and mountains/forest. We ploughed on seeing fishing, farming and meal preparation.... More

Wonderfully informative museum about women in Vietnam. I was mostly interested in the women during the French and American resistance, of which their stories and experiences are utterly fascinating. If you're short for time in Hanoi, this one should take priority!

We visited this museum as we had read about it on TripAdvisor. The museum is located south of Hoan Kiem lake (about 7 minutes walking distance). There are different levels, dealing with the role of women in different parts of vietnamese society. It was an excellent exhibition and we learned a lot. We recommend it to anyone visiting Hanoi!

This is an excellent museum for learning about Vietnamese life, via the family lifestyle. Take the audio tour--it is excellent!

Lovely museum plotting women's history including revolutionaries, marriage customs and birthing traditions. Beautiful examples of clothing and many more interesting artefacts. Husband not a real sightseeing person but really found it interesting. Def worth a visit.

I don't have a lot of to say if not go there and visit it. Tickets price isn't expensive. I went there because my girlfriend wanted, if I where alone I wouldn't probably went there and would have been a mistake. If you go to have a look this museum you will see what a great job and importance women... More

Hotel staff recommended this to us and it was well worth the stop - entry fee is next to nothing and you are treated to some wonderful displays and information about the role of women in Vietnamese history and society. Had no idea of the important role the young women played during the years of war and struggle for independence.... More
