Definitely worth a visit to try & understand the history of Vietnam and the huge number of different people. The variety of buildings in the grounds very interesting

Very interesting, big place giving you information and history on the various tribes that make up Vietnam. Airy, kids can run, toilets and coffee shops very nearby, a nice interesting place for an hour or two, away from the bustle of the city

Interesting to learn about the 54 ethnic minority. It would s a lot to see so unless you are really interested in history and culture, it is a lot of the same things

Part of a Gate 1 tour, this was a good museum. There are two major sections….Outside there is a winding trail that wends through various housing styles associated with the many tribes in Vietnam. The houses are actual constructions from tribes people in those villages. Inside there are exhibits on clothing and various other articles of life associated with the tribes. There are bathrooms but they’re not the cleanest. Two cafes outside can provide sustenance if needed. The overall experience is educational and the various building constructions are fun to climb in to/out of. Recommended

Had no idea that Vietnam has so many ethnic minorities, tribal people who live mostly in the Central and Northern Highlands. Many of these cultures are highlighted with detailed displays. Great prelude to a visit to the Highlands and a home stay. This museum has both indoor and outdoor displays, and an excellent cafe and gift shop.
