Vietnamese women’s museum deals with the contribution of women to Vietnam’s development and particularly their role in the conflicts of the last century.

It’s indeed a gem in Vietnam’s cultural crown. Although it’s small and lack of resources, it has created a collection to put many of the more prestigious institutions to shame. It takes ordinary and often mundane articles but puts them in a context that vividly recreates the past. It’s interesting place to learn about Vietnamese culture. The displays includes marriage, work, motherhood….

One delightful touch is that of naming, and sometimes describing, the women who used them. A simple conceit, but one that personalizes the experience immediately. If you want to escape the busy streets of Hanoi of a couple of hours, it is exact a pretty nice peaceful place to go. Definitely worth a visit!
