What people are saying:

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.

    Worth a look

    Currently undergoing much needed renovations, once complete will be a must see, If the ao dai display is an indicator of what's to come. At this point if you are short on time you could perhaps miss ...

    Interesting museum but lacks impact

    This could be a wonderful “boutique” museum dedicated to the women of Vietnam. There are fascinating stories of the role of women in the struggle for unification and a wonderful range of clothing and...

    Women's Museum

    This is an interesting place and well laid out. It was interesting to us as American's. We found it nice that the females, who play such an important role, are recognized. It was unfortunate that the ...
