During the 90-minute tour, visitors can explore the grand 100-year-old museum building, built in an octagonal shape in typical Indochinese architectural style.

Entitled ‘Soul of Vietnamese villages’, the tour also allows visitors to learn more about the cultural features of Vietnamese rural areas through national treasures on display at the museum, such as the stone incense stick dated to the 17th century, the bronze bride dated to the 18th century, the Ngoc Lu bronze drum, and the Van Ban bell.

A rural space has also been set up to display handicraft products, and offer cuisine experience and pottery-making experiences for tourists.
