Visit Sapa Museum to understand local life

“To thoroughly understand the culture in Sapa,” visit Sapa Museum,” advises Journey Vietnam. It’s the “meeting point of the cultural features of people in the northwest area,” displaying around 200 artefacts as well “models, publications and documentaries about the life and history of the ethnic people living there.” The museum is housed in “an attractive stilt house with a static exhibit upstairs which runs uninspiringly through the history of the Sapa region before moving on to some slightly more engaging exhibits about the culture of the ethnic minoritie,” critiques Travelfish. It specifically focuses on local handicrafts “to promote these traditional crafts and help provide new economic opportunities.”
