    Vietnamese Museums Are Upping Their Game The museum provides a good overview of Vietnam’s various ethnic groups. I would allocate 1-1/2 to 2 hours to see the two main buildings as well as the traditional dwellings on the grounds. If possible, wear non-tie shoes because you must remove your shoes to enter some of the buildings and rooms. Keep in mind that it is away from the center, about five minutes by taxi beyond the zoo and the Lotte and Daewoo hotels.
