  • I quite enjoyed this museum! It's interesting and diverse, but small enough that you can reasonably see all the exhibits. It presents Vietnamese culture and history through a focus on women's experiences and roles, and would be interesting for anyone. It has a good balance of displays/artifacts and contextualizing information.
  • This museum is extremely well done. It shows the history of women in Vietnam, including marriage practices, their role in the war(s), fashion, and home life. There is also an art exhibit on the top floor that I believe rotates. There are features throughout the museum highlighting Vietnam women who have achieved greatness. If you have time, this is a spot to see.
