This is a small museum with limited collection. It helps to explain the trading history of the region. However, the quality of the ceramic is quite average, mainly for everyday use. There are no exceptional pieces there.

The model boat is fun and the history of trading in hoi an is actually more interesting than the history of the houses, in my opinion. Worth a ticket.

Nice small but very informative little Museum which nicely details Hoi An’s history of making and trading in Ceramics. It’s a big part of Why Hoi An thrived and was a commercial hub. Lots of nice examples.

Good effort to provide multi lingual signage. Some interesting facts, but so much more could have been done. Quite a wasted opportunity.
