Why Hoi An Museum of Folk Culture is special ?

Located on Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, the Museum of Folk Culture aims to showcase the daily lives of the humble Hoi An folk people, documenting the local culture and how it manifested in the lives of the locals through the years. A head-turner as one enters the museum are the bizarre-looking plaster sculptures of local Vietnamese farmers and tribes wearing their traditional clothes. Accurately documenting and portraying traditional garb as they were worn in the past is very important to this museum. This is the first museum in the whole of Vietnam to ever focus specifically on the subject of local culture and rural living.

What to explore at Hoi An Museum of Folk Culture?

There are over 600 artifacts in this unique museum and about 90% of these are original, and therefore deserving extra care. Only about 500 artifacts are on display for special protective reasons. The displays are displayed according to the following categories: folklore, traditional clothing, traditional occupation, folklore games, and so on. The most noticeable relics are ancient tools and clothes. All the 500 objects on display are original and over 100 years old. This only shows the richness of the province’s history. Not many major museums can boast of such inventory. These relics are like jigsaw puzzles scattered over a canvass of elapsed time that when put together draws a beautiful picture of authentic Vietnamese culture. The museum aims to highlight Vietnamese family customs, Chinese family customs, and traditional performance arts such as songs and dances.
