Cultural Museum of Vietnamese Ethnic Groups
If you are unable to get to the Hanoi Ethnology Museum, make sure that you visit the Cultural Museum of Vietnamese Ethnic Groups. It's worth stopping here for at least an hour to appreciate the quality of the museum's textiles and the reconstructions of dwellings and workshops. Its architecture is a blend of traditional Vietnamese and Stalinist styles. The museum includes information in Vietnamese, English and French, and is arranged around the country's main ethno-linguistic groups.
