A very unique museum, here you get a look into the art of ancient Vietnamese Medicine and its history dating back to the Stone Age. The Museum of Traditional Vietnamese Medicine, often called Fito Museum is one of many in a chain of privately owned museums. Spread over 6 floors and 24 rooms, it covers everything from history and sculptures, books, influencers and tools and machinery that were used to make medicines. Vietnamese medicine has heavy Chinese influences, and that is evident in the museum- even its architecture and decor, with red and gold lacquered plaques. It is a very well designed and equipped museum and leaves one with a lot of information about Vietnamese medicine.
