Lots to see here. Inside there are exhibits covering the 50-odd ethnic groups in Vietnam. Outside there are traditional buildings and other structures - just fascinating! Good, reasonably-priced gift shop with authentic items.

A very interesting learning experience enjoyed every minute of it. Would not miss this Museum. Hire a guide so you have the benefit of their expertise

I’m not one for hours in a museum on holiday but this is worth a visit with a guide such as Hanoi Kids who will help you understand the various items and displays. Such a wide number of ethnic groups and cultural history is there...More

What can I say: 54 ethnic groups. Different languages, clothing, customs, building styles and all. A very good museum with great exhibits.
