THE MISSION OF THE VIETNAM MUSEUM OF ETHNOLOGY
The mission of the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology is to implement various tasks including scientific research, collecting, object inventory, storage, exhibition, performance, and educational activities in order to contribute to the safeguarding of cultural diversity of different ethnic groups in Vietnam, in Southeast Asia and around the world.
THE VIETNAM MUSEUM OF ETHNOLOGY

Communities for a long time have played an important role in collecting work of the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology. Moreover, they have involved in the preparation process of the Museum’s exhibitions for the purpose of introducing about and preserving cultural heritage. This collaboration has made the Museum’s activities lively and closer to people’s lives. Communities have also effectively participated in performances of traditional handicrafts, folk arts, water puppetry, and folk games etc. Traditional architectures in the open-air exhibition were reconstructed by local artisans and through the years have been repaired by community members themselves. By working together with Museum staff, communities are more proud of their culture and raise the awareness of protecting cultural heritage. In short, the vibrancy and attractiveness of the Museum is due to the enormous contribution of communities. It is the highlights in the VME’s activities in presenting cultural heritage values to visitors.
