A must - to understand Vietnam culture. Make sure you visit all floors . So well done. Make sure you allow 3 hours at a minumim but even if you can’t devote this amount of time at least visit - you will still walk away with a profound education

My wife and I spent hours here while in Hanoi last year. The museum is incredibly informative and interesting... definitely recommend the audio guide. There were 3 or 4 floors of exhibits and we would've explored longer had we not been starving and had to eat. Do not miss this one!

The warmth and depth of character in the portraits of older Vietnamese women in the foyer sets the welcoming mood of this Museum. It’s an active, modern museum covering a broad range of historical and contemporary topics in an architecturally-striking building. The interpretative labelling of the exhibits is very informative. When we visited there was a fine exhibition on Đạo Mẫu, the worship of The Mother Goddess. The bookshop is good.

Located on north side of Lý Thường Kiệt street between Bà Triệu and Hàng Bài. We had some difficulty finding the museum because it was incorrectly shown in the tourist map provided by our hotel as being in the block to the east of Hàng Bài.

As a man I was not quite sure if this was for me but I found it one of the most interesting attractions in Hanoi. It was well thought out, covered a wide range of family and social aspects of Vietnam and had informative interpretation panels in English and French. Most moving was a film with interviews with some of the many women street hawkers that you see all over Hanoi. It told me something of the tough life these women lead.

There are definitely a lot of museums in Hanoi but we chose to go here cause girl power! My favorite section of the museum is the floor dedicated to Vietnamese women in history. It's so empowering to see these women who had huge roles during the resistance against enemies. Most of them started at a very young age, one was only 14 and was executed before she even turned 18.
