This is an amazing place that shows us the female heroes of the fight for Vietnamese freedom and independence. You need google translate to read the descriptions in the section on freedom fighters. Another part of the museum shows how Ao Dai are made. It also highlights the tradition of weaving in Vietnam. This part offers descriptions in Vietnamese, English and French. Overall an fascinating sight to visit!
