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.

The museum provides great insight to the culture and history of Vietnamese women. It is highly informative and all items are labeled in both Vietnamese, English and French. I particularly liked the exhibition about Vietnamese women in history, which is predominantly about women revolutionaries, and found myself crying at the descriptions of the hardships that the heroic women of Vietnam...

This museum is over 3 floors. One devoted to different ethnic groups and how marriage differs between them. Another to fashion and the top floor women in history. The women in history was fascinating. There were many truly remarkable and brave women during many of the Vietnamese wars. Some died very young others went onto to politics and further the... More

The museum is very well laid out, with the three main galleries and then different exhibitions. The entry fee is 30 000d for adults and 15 000d for students and well worth it. At the moment there is an exhibition explaining the Mother Goddess and the significance and meaning of this religion for the Vietnamese people. Be prepared to spend... More

It is fascinating to here where they come from and how they live to earn money. They are very creative in what they sell and how dedicated they are. The next floor is... More

This museum is well worth visiting. It records the contribution that women have made, over the years including the conflict with the French and the US. There are fine examples of craftwork produced by women and a very poignant section where, through video interviews, one finds out about the lives of women who come into the City to earn extra...
