The Women’s Museum in Southern Vietnam is highly recommended, because it describes the arduous process of Vietnamese women. Vietnamese women occupy a very important position in Vietnamese history. The transportation is inconvenient and the opening hours are very short. Pay attention; the staff in the museum cannot communicate; the exhibits are actually good, and there may not be many people to the workshop. There are air-conditioners but they do not operate.
A women's museum introduces the importance of women, and there are many exhibits made by women.
I was one of the only people visiting this museum when I went here on a Saturday afternoon. I don't know why. This excellent museum should come second after the War Museum as the story of the women fighters was a significant part of the Vietnam War story. The first floor has two exhibitions - one with many versions of the "Ao Dai", the traditional Vietnamese dress for women, throughout the years, and the second part was a room with the traditional weaving and production techniques of numerous ethnic groups in the south of Vietnam. The second floor is dedicated to the war and all the women who served. They have photos of women's groups who supported the women's army in Vietnam, mug shots of some of the women who were imprisoned, and a lot of information which for me was a nice addition after having visited the War Remnants Museum the day before. Most signs are in English/Vietnamese. And it's free! Open until 5 p.m.
It is very unique on a global scale to visit the museum dedicated not for women. We absolutely loved it and we're happy to stumbled upon Southern Women's Museum in Ho Chi Minh city! We have learned a lot there about the Vietnamese women and the great role that they played during a war.
This Southern Women’s Museum is four stories high. Although the exhibits are not so colorful, they can basically reflect the changes in the status of Vietnamese women and the true portrayal of Vietnamese women in social life. It can only be said that Vietnamese women are not easy!
