What a wonderful background this gem of a museum gives before embarking on travelling around Vietnam. I particularly appreciated the insights into family life and the role women had played during the "American War". Well presented and do pay the small charge for the audio recording - well worthwhile. It adds a great deal to the experience.

All about the women in different times, ethnies, ages and circumstances. The most interesting part is women during the war. You can only marvel at their courage.

Visited this museum which is on 4 floors. You can have a guided tour, use the audio guides or just wander and read the exhibit's comments. The museum is split into 'Women in the Family', Women in History' and 'Women's Fashion'. There are also exhibitions on here and when we were there, there was an exhibition of older women by... More

We enjoyed learning more about the history and customs involving women in Vietnam and the significant role they have played. The section on Women's life, child birth and rearing was particularly interesting.

We booked a grear package tour through HALONG SAPA EXPERTS website agent and they arranged many great tours during the package, we visited Hanoi Women's Museum on second day, Halong Bay on 3rd day, Sapa on 4th day and tour to the south as well. The package booked through the agent was great and highly recommend it.

five small floors, each one has its own theme. The favourites for me was the textiles of the different minorities and the floor dedicated to women who had a major part in the various wars and conflicts. Fascinating and a must see IMO>

Looking at the history of Vietnam from the womans Point of View, the woman is the mainstay of family life and is vitally important to Vietnamese culture, covered family life through to the place of women during the American war.

The museum has no AC, which is disappointing. But the exhibits are wonderful! My favorite was the Vietnamese Women in History exhibit, which details the roles of revolutionary women in their struggle against the French. The gift shop is very nice too!

Apart from the obvious, I did not know quite what to expect at the museum but it proved a thought provoking morning. The family life, marriage and children elements for so many tribes was interesting. The look at women's influence/contribution to Vietnam's various fights for independence was fascinating. There were a number of other exhibits worth taking your time over.
