The museum does a great job of highlighting important women in Vietnamese history. The audio tours are highly recommended, costing about 30k, well worth the price. The exhibits about the women during the American War have a pretty obvious bias and glorify individuals based on...More

This's a nicely presented museum, featuring a selection of short films and different exhibits about different facets of female's lives. I discovered the interview with street vendors particularly potent and the floor that illustrated female's contribution to Vietnam. Well worth a trip.

2-3 hours. The nice thing about the audio guide is you enter the number for the display you want to hear about. Two of the floors we listened to almost all of the audio guide the last floor we listened to maybe one or two.
