The museum was big, clean and quite spacious. There were only a few visitors around when I was there, though. Entrance fee of 30 000 d is very reasonable compared to the high quality of exhibitions. I found the info about the marriage traditions from different minority tribes really fascinating, as well as their traditional dresses on the third floor.... More

A number of excellent rooms. Currently there's an exhibit about goddess worship that's really rare and informative. The large room about women in the anti-colonial and anti-imperial wars is profound. So poignant. A must see.

I was pleasantly surprised at how well thought out this museum was in presenting the lives of Vietnamese women, from marriage rituals of the different tribes (clothing, gifts (dowry, bedding, etc) to the street vendor, to the women of the revolution and lastly to present day women. Lots of videos. More interesting than Temple of Literature. Probably on par with... More

This was a little information overload for us (although we were at the end of a long day). In saying that the information and displays are extremely nice and I can understand why it is so popular, hence my rating. Just not for us personally.

This small museum is interesting and very helpful for learning about Vietnamese women and the history of Vietnam. It's modern, organized by area each on a separate floor. Location is convenient, within walking distance from the Old Quarter.

Must take a couple of hours to see the history of this country's women, it's well worth a visit to see how they coped with the difficulties they had to endure.

The first thing to impress me was the quality and presentation of the information and exhibits. Very slick by Vietnamese standards! Each floor of the museum focuses on a different aspect of Vietnamese women. I particularly enjoyed the ones about the clothing of different ethnic minorities and the videos explaining the day to day struggle for the hundreds of mobile... More

We spent three hours here. We got the headsets and roamed the three floors, listening to first hand accounts of events. Well conceived and presented. Very informative.
