Fito Museum

The Fito Museum in Saigon is the first museum of Vietnamese medicine. On display are nearly 3,000 items dating back to the Stone Age. Exhibits include tools used to prepare medicine, knives, mortars and pestles, documents and objects from a traditional pharmacy. The museum regularly screens a documentary about the history of medicine.
 

When in HCMC check out The Fito Museum. Admire the many documents and books on display that deal with traditional Vietnamese medicine. Browse through the scales, cabinets, printing molds, spirit gourd, tea pot, lime pot and other ceramic pieces. The Fito Museum regularly screens a documentary about the history of Vietnam's traditional medicine called 'A Century of Health Care Experiences'.
