About the Women’s Museum

Despite being a patriarchal society, Vietnam still reserves a special, if not sacred, place to honour Vietnamese women. Not only is October 20th is made Vietnam’s Women day but there also exists a museum dedicated to women.

There are also frequent exhibitions on contemporary women, such as women working as street vendors or women’s place in the family. The Vietnam Women’s Museum is definitely worth a few hour visit, especially for those keen on learning about culture and gender.

The main building of the museum is divided in 4 areas: permanent exhibition, special exhibition, discovery corner and the museum shop. Temporary exhibitions are also organised in a nearby area of the main building. The visitor can also find a Café.

The museum is located at 36 Ly Thuong Kiet, Hanoi. You can visit the museum website:http://www.womenmuseum.org.vn for more information.
