Ethnographic Museum

Top choice museum in Buon Ma Thuot

This excellent museum takes you through the history of Dak Lak province, from stone tools and bronze burial drums to the American War and its aftermath, written from the North Vietnamese perspective. Chortle at the natural history section with the wacky taxidermy and a demonic-looking deer! Marvel at the minority culture exhibits, with outstanding photography, displays of traditional clothing, musical instruments, and ritual objects such as the buffalo sacrifice pole, and learn about the seven-year tomb-abandoning ceremony.
