Dak Lak Museum information
This musty, little-visited museum has a small display of cultural artefacts and photographs about indigenous minority groups. The Ho Chi Minh quotation, posted boldly over a golden bust of him in the main hall, blithely declares that all ethnic minorities are ‘the children of Vietnam’ and ‘blood brothers’ to the Vietnamese.
The museum is housed in the Bao Dai Villa, a grand French-colonial building that was one of the emperor’s many residences.
