Great overview of Vietnam. Never realised how many ethnic groups there are in one country but this place clearly explained it all. The recreated village long houses and tombs outside were very effective and interesting. You should visit

Our guided tour led us through this area of vignettes set up to reflect the manner of living of Vietnamese native peoples. The tools and clothing are housed in the museum on the grounds. This was fascinating to see actual homes moved here, not replicas.

The museum was extremely useful and well presented. I truly liked the traditional structure exhibit within the grounds. Great to find out the ethnic community of Vietnam has been preserved for generations to come to find out about. Great value.
