A limited collection of ceramics for the enthusiast and some historical records too, but you'd need to be keen to get much out of the ceramic collection as a layman. However, the ancient house is stunning and well worth a visit in its own right.

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.

Spent over an hour here, so much of interest to read about the history here and lots of broken pots. Thoroughly enjoyed it and well worth the ticket.

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.
