Informative and well presented. Gave great information about the astonishing array of ethnic groups in the country and their cultures. Well worth a visit.

As part of a tour that we were on we visited the museum. On the outside it had different types of houses that had been built to scale. These were the houses that the diverse ethnic monorities lived in, these were the people that we would encounter on our trip to Sapa. On the inside there were many displays showing how these people lived their daily lives. We found the trip to be interesting and it showed us what we would see on the next leg of our tour.

All was of much interest and very informative. The burial ceremonies and rituals was of special interest, as well as the houses and contents, also styles of dress for the many regions.

All the essentials about some of the ethnic minorities in Vietnam, the re-built houses outside give a good idea of how they look in the villages. The partly opened new building is impressive with some very well presented exhibits. Don't miss the caffee, used for training young people hoping to improve their employability.

Its really good for whom wants to discover Vietnamese people. I had chance to work as a volunteer here for a month. It was a great experiences!. You will see the culture of 54 ethnic groups of Vietnam via their houses, garden, labor tools, costumes etc.

If you visit on weekend, you will have chance to see water puppet show inside museum. Its free.

Normally, there are two big festivals, one is on Mid-Autumn Festival, and others is after
"Tet Holiday". There are many activities in this festival, such as: Vietnamese Folk Games (about 20 games), Vietnamese foods trying, Vietnamese traditional arts (Dong Ho painting, To He, etc.), Vietnamese traditional music (Ca tru), etc.
