The museum and the audio tour was super enjoyable, informative and expansive. It included information on cultural experiences and rituals in Vietnam such as marriage, birth and womens working lives. The information on the women invloved in the American war was eye opening and amazing.

Excellent, informative museum. We spent about an hour here but only because we had to leave at closing time! I recommend allowing at least 1.5 hours.

Historically, there is no concept of 'sexual inequality' in Vietnamese society. Both men and women have equally important roles in society...and that includes war! Vietnamese women are tough, brave, resilient and independent. They have held important roles in Vietnamese armies, right up to rank of...More

Several blocks south of Hoan Kiem Lake, but worth the walk. Lots of exhibits about women, also video presentations. Historical displays, and dress over the ages

If you want to learn more about the life of Vietnamese women through the past this is a must. From the clothes worn over the ages to the hard life through the war. I found this museum very interesting.

Yes it does. Make sure for the little extra you do the audio as it is well worth listening to the stories.
