This museum is absolutely amazing, the building is a breath-taking ancient house and the exposition is well organized. The 15 minutes introduction video will help you to feel the topic and with only 120.000 entrance fee you will also have a guide that will drive you around the museum and explain everything in detail. The place is stunning as well as the history of Vietnamese medicine. I absolutely think is a must visit place. It worths every minute. The only negative thing is maybe the English of the guide girl, is not perfect and sometimes you will need to ask her to repeat things. Anyway it wasn't a bad English at all, and the girl was really kind, helpful and smiley even when we didn't understand everything. Wonderful experience!!
