Vietnam Museum of Ethnology

The Vietnam Museum of Ethnology, or VME, has two distinct areas - indoor and outdoor.

Indoors is a permanent exhibition divided into 9 sections proudly informing of Historical & Cultural Periods, the 3 Major Sub-Regions, and the 54 ethnic groups classified according to the 5 Language families. Audiotapes highlight fascinating ethnic linguistic differences.

Outdoors is a maturing exhibition showing full-scale examples of ethnic house-building techniques and design. Carefully sourced indigenous trees are sympathetically planted around each appropriate house.

Practical Info

The Vietnam Museum of Ethnology is located in Cau Giay district. You can take a no.14 minibus from Dinh Tien Hoang Street, heading north past Lake Hoan Kiem to Nghia Tan a few blocks from the museum.

A well-thought out display for anyone interested in history, anthropology, and the diverse ethnicity of Vietnam.
