About
54 Traditions Gallery is the only gallery in Vietnam focusing on the antiques, artifacts and art of Vietnam’s 54 ethnic groups. We have a room dedicated to each of the following categories: The Central Highlands, Tribal Textiles, The Shamanic Tradition, Functional Objects, Water Puppets and Stone and Bronze Antiques. Our approach is “anthropological”- we believe that the value and appreciation of an object is increased when we know what it is , when and why it was made and who made it, who used it, why it looks the way it does. We have over 1000 objects on display and objects from our collection have been exhibited in national museums in Hanoi. All objects are guaranteed to be as described and accompanied by a Fact Sheet of at least 1000 words, giving the details on the people who made the object, materials used, purpose, and probable age. We work with numerous museums in VN, USA, and elsewhere. Our price range is very broad, with objects under $20 and over $1000.

    The place to find traditional crafts and antiques in Hanoi
    I enjoy antiques and traditional crafts, so I sought out this gallery on the edge of the old quarter. I was pleased to find a large and beautiful collection of artifacts from the many ethnic groups and cultures of Vietnam, some dating back to the Bronze Age. Nhung Nguyễn, the owner, welcomed me and took a half hour of her time to show me around and to explain many of the objects. She is clearly an expert in the field and provides written documentation and provenance for every purchase. Although the artifacts are for sale, this is clearly a labor of love and a visit here is a great introduction to Vietnamese culture and arts. 54 Traditions is also a place to find a memento of a trip to Hanoi at a price that is very reasonable considering the unique history and meaning of each of these objects.

    A small gallery with an amazing collection
    The small three storey gallery holds surprisingly diverse and beautiful collections of art, textiles and crafts from the northern Vietnam. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. It’s located between the old quarter and Ho Tay lake, only a short walk from either end. Highly recommended to visit!

    Extraordinary Collection and Shop
    Extraordinary selection of genuine antique artefacts displayed over 3 floors. Selecting something is a tad overwhelming and recommend viewing and then returning later. Knowledgeable staff and no pressure. But don’t go here looking for a cheap souvenir!

    Love this place- you must go!
    Every few years we travel to Hanoi and visit this gallery. We love it. We learn so much while we are there. We have learned that the items they sell are ethically sourced and authentic. They provide a curated sheet of information with each item. We have some very special pieces in our home thanks to 54 traditions Gallery. The prices are great and there are price points for every type of shopper.

    Worth a visit!
    Very cool place, with Vietnam artifacts from ancient times and more recent times to marvel at, and even buy. The proprietor is very friendly and helpful. The area is also quite interesting, a little more walkable and less hectic than the old quarter, but still things to see and eat!
