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.
The Southern Women's Museum is four stories high. Although the exhibits are not so rich and colorful, they can also basically reflect the change of 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.
The Southern Women's Museum has many English signs. If you can speak English, you don't need a guide. Audio guides are also available. In Hanoi, you must stop to watch videos about street vendors. Some very touching mourning mothers who lost their sons in the war, one mother who lost eight children, many women's contributions to the war and some touching videos.
This museum is still very good, we actually play here is very happy, as a whole is very good, recommend the environment here.
The Southern Women's Museum mainly displays Vietnamese women's clothing, jewelry, tools, weapons, and many photographs, which are very precious.
The Southern Women's Museum is a very special place where many Vietnamese traditional women's clothing and jewelry are displayed.
