Nice exhibits, but only a bare minimum of information provided for each display. For example, most artifacts didn't include an estimated creation date,

This is an extremely interesting museum and good value too. It provides a good introduction to Vietnam, as well.

Nice museum that gives a clear overview of the etnic diversity in Vietnam. Well maintained with clear displays in English and French. Also nice temporary exhibition. A pity that the new part wasn't open yet for the public.

A lot of information about the minor hill tribes but it was the typical soulless communist presentation. A lot of cats but no real attempt at understanding the people.

如果你能能夠讀英文那就沒問題。但在這裏的說明也是很間單,如果你有導遊的話就比較長細。
