This was my favorite stop on our tour of Hanoi. The museum has great displays inside the main building which show you how Vietnamese from around the country work, live, celebrate, etc. There are videos, photos and displays to really make it come to life and even the kids enjoyed it. Even better, they have an open-air museum outside with several different types of traditional houses built on the museum grounds. It was fascinating to see them and walk through them. If you go to only one museum in Hanoi, make it this one.
