Founded by famous Vietnamese fashion designer Sy Hoang, Ao Dai Museum in HCMC’s District 9 is the first of its kind honoring the beauty and history of the traditional Vietnamese dress. The designer has spent 10 years completing the project of ao dai museum.
The museum, which was put into operation in 2014, displays ao dai designs developed in different historical periods. Each ao dai showcased there has an interesting story.
The museum complex also features a green space which gives visitors an impression that they are very close to nature.
