At the Vietnamese Women's Museum, the two ladies visited the exhibition area. They heard introductions to documents and artifacts at the museum that honor the beauty of Vietnamese women and, at the same time, reflect the development and change in the role, position, and life of Vietnamese women in society over time.

Peng Liyuan sincerely thanked Ngo Thi Man for bringing her to the museum, thereby helping her better understand the diligence and courage of Vietnamese women.

In a close and sincere atmosphere, the two ladies enjoyed tea and a performance of ao dai (Vietnamese traditional long dress) and Vietnamese traditional musical instruments.

The ladies' visit left many deep impressions and was a valuable source of encouragement, strengthening the friendship, connection and exchange between women and people of the two countries.

Established in 1987, the Vietnamese Women’s Museum is located at 36 Ly Thuong Kiet Street, Hanoi. It contains approximately 40,000 materials and artifacts illustrating the lives of Vietnamese women throughout history.

The exhibition area is divided into three parts: Women in Families, Women in History, and Women’s Fashion. These exhibitions reveal many facets of Vietnamese women’s culture through rituals, marriage and birth-giving traditions, and traditional costumes. Stories about women in wartime and contemporary society are also presented here.
