Muong Ethnic Culture Museum

About 70 kilometers north of Hanoi stands the Muong Ethnic Group Cultural Space Museum, the first private museum in Hoa Binh province, and the only museum in Vietnam devoted to Muong culture.

The centuries-old Muong culture is captured in two sections: a reenactment section and a display section. The reenactment section contains 4 Muong stilt houses that illustrate the social stratification of feudal society. The Muong houses are differentiated by social status - the 'Lang' house for the most powerful families, the 'Au' house for the mandarins, the 'Tao'house for ordinary people, and the 'No' house for the lowest class, such as widows and orphans (Photo: VN)

Further on are display rooms which showcase traditional Muong handicrafts such as knitted woven and embroidered fabrics, tools for hunting and farming, and items used in festivals, traditional observances, and religious practice (Photo: VNA)

The museum was founded by a painter Vu Duc Hieu born and raised in Hanoi, whose heart belongs to the Muong culture. His initiative to create the Muong Ethnic Group Cultural Space Museum was enthusiastically supported by the Hoa Binh provincial Department of Culture and Sports, administrators at all levels, and the Muong people (Photo: VNA)

After ten years of planning and a year of construction, the 2-hectare museum officially opened on December 16, 2007. It not only reflects Muong life and culture, it also hosts community art performances (Photo: VNA)
