Tip: buy the sightseeing ticket on the Information Center. Without it is impossible to visit the houses/ temple. All of them (except the Trieu Chau Assembly Hall) require it.The Information Center staff is very rude.The "museum" is extremely poor. Two small rooms with very few relevant info or artifacts. It could be better. I do not recommend it.

This place is small and worn down. The museum is mostly old pictures, some artifacts and a cannon. I wouldn't go out of your way to visit here. At least the adjoining pagoda is nice.The only real point of interest for me were the old maps from Colonial times, but even these were dusty and poorly maintained

The museum is set in a lovely old building, but the displays and written explanations are a bit tired and dusty and in need off a good clean up. A peaceful spot to spend half an hour.

Good place to learn about Hoi An. Take about an hour to look through slowly all the stuff. There is even an early 19th century map by the British on the region!
