I had a fairly quick visit to this small museum in Hoi An towards closing time. There were a few interesting displays of miscellaneous Vietnamese cultural material inside, nothing too exciting in itself. A short visit will probably be sufficient for most people unless this is really an area of interest.

The Museum of Folk Culture is in the heart of Hoi An's Ancient Town. It is accessed using one of the Ancient Town entrance tickets. The Museum is a 19th century house over two floors with displays of local items, notably materials. The lighting of the museum is low. The dark wood structure means it is not especially easy to...

This is one of the more interesting houses in the old town. Local family history and photos show the generations passing through. Next to the Japanese bridge it is easy to find.

If you want to experience a Vietnamese merchant's house just like it must have been 200 years ago you must visit this house. It only takes 20 minutes or so. Very nice wooden walls and ceilings. Goods for sale not too interesing. The house lies very centrally in the old town of Hoi An.

This museum is well worth a stop to learn more about local crafts and art styles. I was under the impression that this was ticketed as part of the Old Town ticket, however, no one checked and I was allowed to enter for free. The ground floor is dedicated to arts and crafts. When I went on a Sunday there... More

Its good to see the house plan to the right of the entrance to get your bearings. The house is on two main levels but with subtleties in level and space throughout. The main structure is dark timber, timber floors, walls and screens. The spaces are carefully divided into single, double height and outside space. Sort of Japanese style strictly... More

One of the place that I would recommend to those visiting Hoi An Ancient Town. This place has displayed some art works, Chinese calligraphy, music instruments, and cultural displays. Also, you can have very nice background for photo enthusiastic, the first floor with its wooden floor and wall, the courtyard, the plant etc.

The exhibits at the Museum of Folk History in Hoi an are a great representation of culture. They allow for a look into the past and at many of the tools used throughout the decades in Vietnam. It covers a large range of art, culture and everyday life from making clothing and fabric to farming and fishing. Altogether we enjoyed... More
