Museum of Ethnology
Anthropologists will especially enjoy the Museum of Ethnology that explores the 54 officially recognized ethnic peoples of Vietnam. Exhibits include a brief primer on each group and information about their folkways; in the museum’s 10 acres of grounds, there are additionally replicas of dwellings that visitors can enter. For those with an interest in textiles, the varied designs and techniques of Vietnam’s different ethnicities will be fascinating. There are also water-puppetry performances on weekends.
