Interesting and well elaborated exhibits covering the many ethnic groups of Vietnam. Exhibitions are labeled in Vietnamese, English, and French. There is also an extensive outdoor exhibition area with traditional houses and funereal structures, as well as a water puppet theatre.

This museum shows the large number of different ethnic tribes which constitute Vietnam. Whilst it is of some interest, there is a lot about the different costumes and textiles and different house types.

The best place to know Vietnam's traditions, culture and minorities - you need only 1-2 hours (depend of you) to get a lot of information for example about minorities lives in Vietnam. Great maps and photos.
