Ethnology Museum

Dedicated to educating the public about Vietnam's 53 ethnic minority groups, the Ethnology Museum is far and away Hanoi's most impressive museum. As it's a bit out of central Hanoi, make sure to leave plenty of time for a day trip. Don't miss the exterior section where the architectural styles of the various tribes are reproduced in life-size houses. You'll be scrambling up ladders and ducking through tiny doorways in no time.

Located on Nguyen Van Huyen, the venue is about 8km from the centre of Hanoi and is divided into indoor and outdoor exhibition areas. Displaying the ethnic groups of Vietnam, the Ethnology Museum is both a research centre and a public museum. The goals of the museum are to preserve the culture and history of Vietnam's diverse ethnic groups. Artefacts on display include knives, baskets, garments, fishing instruments, weapons, household utensils and clothing.
