Soak up the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology

The Museum of Ethnology is a “must for any culture vulture and craft lover,” says Haute Culture Fashion. It presents “an outstanding collection of anthropological artifacts from Vietnam’s 54 ethnic minorities” and neighboring South East Asia -- “cultural costume, traditional textiles, handicrafts and tribal art are creatively curated” alongside an “impressive display of life size ethnic houses and every day objects.” And behind the main building is an outdoor exhibit space with “winding pathways that lead to 18 replicas of lifesize tombs, boats, and traditional Vietnamese homes, including the impressive Nha Rong Bana Communal House reachable by a log ladder with chiseled steps,” explains Fodors.
