  • Get the audio guide. It's informative and helps explain the exhibit in more details. I liked that the audio guide uses dialogues by locals to describe cultures and how they go about their daily lives. Spent 3 hours here cos I was so immersed.
  • Must see when in Hoian. Great exhibition of women's efforts in the fight for Vietnam freedom. Also, exhibition of tribunal costumes and lifestyle. Very interesting.
