Wonderful exhibit well curated easily followed with the audio guide. It is easy to get lost in the first floor exhibit on families and culture but be sure to allow enough time and reserve energy for the second floor on Vietnamese women in war

It will be good to visit this museum with a local guide or rent the audio service to understand why this museum is dedicated for the Viet woman especially during the resistance war and America war.

I so enjoyed this museum and don't let the name throw you off, it's not specifically geared for women visitors . Anyone will find the history, culture and artifacts intriguing. You will learn so much about the development of the past culture and see it tie in with the modern growing society

This was without a doubt the best museum we visited in Vietnam! It was so interesting learning about Vietnamese women, from the women selling fruit on the street to the many female guerilla soldiers in the Vietnam war. It is a must do in Hanoi!

The women's museum was really cool. It lets us enjoy the culture as well as celebrate the great achievement the women across the world. It was extremely educational and an eye opener.

Well worth a visit at a very moderate entrance fee (US$2.50 approx). The displays take you through the customs and history of Vietnam through lives of women. A well spent 2 hours.

Had a very nice experience at the Women's museum. You get a nice introduction to the womans role in Vietnam, both among ethnic vietnamese and the tribes. Also a lot of information about female guerilla soldiers during the war. Can only recommend it..

This museum shows the contribution of women in the Vietnamese history. There are stories about traditional wedding ceremony, giving birth, weaving, embroidery, and showcase of traditional ao dai costumes.
