This is a private museum of traditional Chinese medicine. The building itself is quite interesting, not to mention the different artifacts showing the history of Chinese medicine. The ticket is well worth the price (50 000). You can buy many herbs and potions.

The building itself is beautiful and the contents fascinating. Well worth a visit. We were with our own guide who explained various aspects. There is some signage in English explaining the artefacts. My favourite and most photographed part was the beautiful artwork in the stairwell

Looking towards the ends of our travel guide for HCMC, this caught my eye. This should be higher rated in the guide, because it is so worth the visit! It probably only took an hour to get through, but the architecture itself is worth it....More

We enjoyed the building very much indeed - a visual delight. The guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic, though his English is very accented. An hour or so of a very pleasant escape from the hurly burly of the city.

I had a great time at FITO Museum looking at the prehistoric items on display, taking photographs, and even trying on the robes there! The tour guides were also very friendly and offered to put on the costumes for you.

Really enjoyed this tour! Walking through the old home was truly magical. I especially enjoyed the wall of jars with all the traditional medicine :)

A private museum of herbal medicines which can be purchased at a very modest price and the making of. But it's also a great place for photos. A must visit place when in Saigon.

They have an amazing collection of prehistoric items on the top floor. Some are 3,500 yrs old, and in good condition. Floor-by-floor they have beautiful layouts, and on one floor, you can even try on the traditional Vietnamese Medicine-man's costume for selfies. Excellent layout, excellent...More

It's 3.3 km from Ben Thanh market so you can catch a taxi, the total price is $2. Last time, my local friend drove and took me there. You can use Google Map to navigate the shortest route by bus.

The free guided tour takes 30 minutes, although ours was a little longer to include some questions and answers, and photo taking. All in all we spent about an hour and a half here.
