Museum of Ethnology, Hanoi: 43 reviews and 119 photos
Be prepared to spend at least one afternoon to have only a very small introduction to Vietnamese cultural diversity! Most ethnic groups or areas are represented in the museum! This museum is a real work of cultural conservancy and the items displayed were saved during colonial days and the work was wonderfully pursued by the free Democratic Republic of Vietnam (no sarcasm, this time!) .
The building and the rooms are very well lightened, items very well displayed; many explanatory boards give the visitor plenty of a bit scholar explanations, but retain what you like. Videos, dioramas. . . a modern museum.
The pictures show how things are displayed, like the fish traps on the main picture, the ritual decotation, the weapons, the Cham cart. . . On the last picture is ethnologist Georges Condominas on field work (Picture from the museum website).
