This excellent, modern museum showcases women’s role in Vietnamese society and culture. Labelled in English and French, it’s the memories of the wartime contribution by individual heroic women that are most poignant. There is a stunning collection of propaganda posters, as well as costumes, tribal basketware and fabric motifs from Vietnam’s ethnic minority groups. Check the website for special exhibitions.

Five wonderful floors of insight on the women who built and represent Vietnam. From the soldiers to the roadside vendors they're all here

Great museum that tells the life of women of all the different minorities in the north and around Vietnam, remembers historical figures and shows present life style.
