Vietnamese women have excelled in almost every field from serving the society as nurses to serving the nation as warriors. To venerate their role in all walks of life, Vietnamese Women's Museum was established in Hanoi in 1987 and administered by the Vietnam Women’s Union. It houses a remarkable collection, divided into three main sections, viz. Women in Family, Women in History and Women in Fashion. Over 28,000 objects related to them are on display here. The range includes textiles, metal objects, paper, pottery, wooden items etc. collected from women across the country whose identities are known. The objects narrate their stories, giving an emotional appeal to the museum.
The Women in Family section has bridal costumes and everyday objects that describe their life as a young girl, a married women, a mother and even the rituals surrounding pregnancy. The history section glorifies female warriors who fought valiantly during the war years, whereas the section dedicated to Women in Fashion displays various garments and accessories. The museum has been ranked as one of the best places to visit in Vietnam by some of the leading travel websites.
