More than 1,000 antiquities were preserved and displayed at the museum. With this museum you can admire and learn more about the life of ethnic people in northwestern Vietnam. If you want to visit this museum of Thai people, please refer to some experience as follows.
Thai people in Mai Chau become closer to Vietnamese and international tourists by touring Hanoi – Ban Lac – Mai Chau. Everyone goes to Mai Chau to see the green mountains, yellow color rice, dye rainbow every spring.
The museum is a romantic wooden floor at the foot of the hill, green fruit trees, white flowers in front of the alley. This museum is also houses of the couple Kien, Le and his children. Mr. Kieu Van Kien founded Vietnam’s only Thai cultural museum in Mai Chau-Hoa Binh after ten years of Thai cultural artifacts in 2013.

The Museum of Thai culture in Mai Chau, Hoa Binh, which displays and preserves the tangible and intangible cultural values of the Thai people, helps more people understand more about the unique culture of the Northwest.
Visiting the museum you will have the opportunity to admire many ancient artifacts. Mr. Kien said he now has more than 1,000 antiques. In particular, the most rare are more than a dozen Thai books, especially the three books of genealogy of the Thai people over 200 years ago.
In addition, Mr. Kien also has a collection of porcelain with hundreds of bowls, plates, warm cups. He said many of the antiquities found bowls may have originated from the Ly period, extremely valuable. And now he is waiting for the archaeologists to evaluate these artifacts.
The most gratifying and equally worthwhile artifact was the four-handed, 30-kilogram bracelet, about 300-400 years old at the museum. Most of the artifacts he collected were tools attached to daily life of the ancient Thai people such as food processing tools (including pots, stir-fries, bowls, plates, trays, chopsticks, gourd, stone mill); hunting and gathering tools (including traps, crossbows, aprons, posters, etc.); light bulbs, lamps, patio lights of the time before; The master’s offerings include blouses, drums, gongs, calendars.
