Before entering into the museum we watched the show of the wooden puppets. It's been so interesting because it's part of the tradition of this country so you can understand a bit more its culture.

We went to the museum for 2 hours and could have easily spent much longer. It's a really interesting place, and the reconstructed houses are superb.

We had a guided tour that took us to the museum where we learnt about the traditions and different customs of the people of Vietnam. Very interesting exhibition where i wished i spent more time but was on a tight schedule.

Excellent museum. Learn about the small cultural clusters (tribes) that are slowly fading away...sadly.

The museum became quite 'samey' after a while as you saw the typical housing of each ethnic group, followed by traditional dress for each group etc. Well set out, but not the most interesting.

I found this museum to be really interesting. It shows you how the ethnic cultures of the Vietnamese live in the mountain areas. Their beliefs, customs, clothes etc. You can even enter full replica houses and watch how they were built and assembled on site....More
