Along with the womens museum, the ethnolgy museum is one of my absolute favourites in Hanoi. As a textiles enthusiast, it is a wonderful day out that offers information not just about Vietnams ethnic groups, but minority peoples throughout South East Asia. The model village gives a real sense of scale that is second only to actually staying with communities in Sapa, Ha Giang or elsewhere in Vietnam.

This very large museum is worth a long,calm visit if you are interested in Vietnam, its various cultural people, traditions, languages and cultures.
The main building will take about 2 hours: there's plenty of very interesting comments about rituals,origins, language, domestic objects, costumes ( you will learn so much about colour dyes, fibers, conical hats making, pottery, jewellery for each ethnic groups) etc..on 3 floors.
Have a delicious lunch break in the restaurant: freshly cooked Vietnamese cuisine, and rest your legs and brain.
The garden displays a real, functioning water puppets theatre ( photo) and some houses on stilts, palm roofs houses over a large area. Fascinating and well maintained.
The second building is more about exhibitions of textiles and private collectors donations,varied and still interesting.
