I was very disappointed with this museum which costs 120,000 dong to get into. first they show you a video which is basically promoting vietnamese medicine. Then they show you around. The guide really wasnt that interested and seemed bored. There was very little information about vietamese medicine and the whole aim seems to be to get you to buy some herbal medicine tea. Persoally I dot thik that its worth the entrance fee.

Fito Museum was created with a nice and unique theme. But now they have just become more greedy with hiked unaffordable entry fee, absolutely uninformed guides, incomprehensible English pronunciation...ridiculous now to take friends and family there anymore...will never visit again.

This proved to be very interesting with many exhibits presented very well. The young man who was our guide spoke English well and could be easily understood.

The architecture of this museum is amazing! It feels like you are transported to a different time with the mixture of traditional medicine and design of this museum. You start off the tour by watching a video and then a tour guide (free!) brings you and other guests throughout the museum. There are a couple levels to this place so there is plenty to see. The most eye catching part of this museum was the room with the snake wine...yikes! Overall, I would say it is worth the visit here because you really get some great insight into how medicine was used years ago.

SO MUCH FUN! Insights into the ancient healing arts of Vietnam. There's a movie and a guided tour. Very well curated.
