 Visit Vietnam Women museum in Hanoi

There are many interesting museums in Hanoi, for example, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Ethnology, the Ho Chi Minh Museum and the Museum of Vietnamese History, which are worth visiting, but my opinion, the Museum of Vietnamese Women to No 36 Ly Thuong Kiet Street is the best to visit.

Specifically, it is the only museum in the city where I could see the exhibitions on pressing social problems which Vietnam (and the world) is facing today. Its impressive collection of vintage propaganda posters, many permanently exposed throughout the building, are also the best I've seen so far.

The museum has undergone extensive renovations in recent years, and at the end of 2011, he celebrated the opening of its new exhibition space that proudly displays its fascinating collection of art activities related to all aspects of the lives of Vietnamese women today and throughout history.

Permanent exhibits include sections on marriage and family life (including many of the 54 ethnic groups of Vietnam), a collection of costumes that rival those of the Museum of Ethnology and the Museum of Fine Arts; sellers street, and, best of all, women in history, which explains the roles extraordinary ordinary women who have played in Vietnamese history, especially during the wars of national resistance against the French and Americans.

Perhaps the most interesting and relevant museum's temporary exhibitions are on current social issues such as domestic violence, mass migration from rural to urban areas, human trafficking…

His close ties with the Vietnamese Women's Union and numerous governmental and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have allowed the museum to present this exhibition and public awareness of these critical issues. As such, he is actively engaged in many positive contributions to national development.

Unfortunately, however, this impressive museum is usually neglected in most tourist itineraries, which is a big regret for both tourists and the country. Since its reopening in its newly renovated, the number of Vietnamese visitors has increased significantly, which is very good, but I think it should be further strengthened in the tourism sector in Vietnam. This museum is located in a main street and within walking distance of other popular attractions such as Hoan Kiem Lake, the Old Quarter, and the puppet theater on the water this is why I believe it is easy to include this museum visitation programs of most operators.

Many foreigners who visit Hanoi are very interested in the history of Vietnam and its current status as a developing country. The Museum of Vietnamese Women offers a unique perspective and informative at the same time, as well as ongoing efforts in the country to positively address many international issues.

Anyone visiting Hanoi, regardless of gender, is well advised to visit the Museum of Vietnamese Women to have a unique insight into Vietnamese history that can not be seen anywhere else..
