I don't know if the water puppet show at the Museum Of Ethnology will run in 2017. It looked like a permanant setup, though, and our guide said that the performers got very cold in the winter, so it is probably the case that it runs year round. If you really want to see a water puppet show (I'm not a big fan) this would be the one to see. It is outdoors with shade, and I while I just walked by this one, I would have preferred this outdoor show to the hot indoor one we saw in the Old Quarter.

Not sure what they have planned for 2017. The theatre near Hoan Kiem Lake does a water puppet show that's very good as an alternative whilst in Hanoi.

Hi.....2017......I have not thought about.....which month? Unless there is major maintenance or whatever the show continues as it is such a cultural experience and also originated in the north. Hoi An and Sai Gon also have these shows but I love the one in Ha Noi for its history and the fact the theatre is located right next to the lake which is now being made into a walking area on weekends and also surrounded by restaurants.....a fabulous show in a fabulous area. Hope you enjoy.

Hi,

It's likely that it will be, it certainly was when I was there at the beginning of the month but best to ask your accommodation provider to call ahead if you're interested or find a leaflet for the Museum which should tell you.

Alternatively, it's worth seeing the water puppet show in the theatre in town just off Hoan Kiem Lake!

Hope this helps.
