I loved this museum! It does a wonderful job of explaining the role of women in Vietnamese culture and history, as well as provides insights on everyday life in the villages.

And I grew up in Washington DC with Smithsonian museums... u can get an audio tour for another 30k dong but don't need it. I did it without it. It's very cool to see the pride recognition for the...

This large museum affords a unique look at Vietnamese cultures and families through a focus on women. I was intrigued by the revolutionaries floor, but was more fascinated by the traditions associated with marriage and child birth. Great explanations, compelling artifacts and clothing, and even a few amazing short films (watch the one on street vendors and your perspective will... More

Museum is divided into three sections - women in family, women in history and women's fashions. Pictures are allowed. Good gift shop. Entrance fee is around $1.50 USD.

This is one of the must be seen museums in Hanoi. Located in centre, easy to catch by walking from the Old quarter or 10 minutes by taxi from the French one. You wont never beleive in Vietnamese women strength and will. How hard for them to fight and protect their family and country.

A very easy to follow museum based on family life and the woman role from birth thru life in Vietnam...mainly from country perspective.

Wonderful exhibit well curated easily followed with the audio guide. It is easy to get lost in the first floor exhibit on families and culture but be sure to allow enough time and reserve energy for the second floor on Vietnamese women in war

It will be good to visit this museum with a local guide or rent the audio service to understand why this museum is dedicated for the Viet woman especially during the resistance war and America war.
