Vietnam Museum of Ethnology
Vietnam Museum of Ethnology Review
Showcasing the cultural heritage of 54 ethnic groups in Vietnam, this museum has an indoor exhibition with a large collection of photographs and artifacts, including clothing, jewelry, tools, weapons, instruments, and items related to the religious beliefs and wedding and funeral ceremonies. 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. A free water puppet show is presented twice daily.
