At Vietnamese Women's Museum, learn how working women, mothers, wives, and female warriors helped shape the country's history and culture. This modern museum explores different roles women played (and still do) in the development of various aspects of Vietnamese society--ranging from the private sector of household and family life to the public sector of trade and military conflicts. The museum opened in 1995 and today boasts a collection of more than 1,000 items arranged in thematic displays featuring themes of marriage, fashion, war, commerce, etc. After your tour you can relax in the museum cafe or browse products made by disadvantaged groups in the gift shop.

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.
