Located west of the city center, the Bao Tang Dan Toc Hoc or the Museum of Ethnology  offers informative and well- documented displays on the  country’s many ethnic groups. These range from the dominant Kinh to the  smallest minorities in the high- lands of the north and center.  Exhibits in the main building include elaborate and colorful hill­tribe costumes, weaving designs, musical instruments, fishing implements, work tools, and other functional objects. The displays continue on to the extensive grounds outside, with fascinating examples of minority housing from the Central Highlands, such as communal houses, steep pitched roofs, and elaborately carved tombs. A highlight here is the re­creation of a Black Thai house. The museum also serves as a research center for Vietnam’s 54 recognized ethnic groups.
