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.

Excellent the best thing in hanoi Fantastic insight into Vietnamese culture with many photographs and artefacts. Small villages re created and even a water puppet show, though we missed it! Thoroughly recommend it for the family!
