Museum of Traditional Vietnamese Medicine (Fito Museum)
The Museum of Traditional Vietnamese Medicine (Bảo Tàng Y Học Cổ Truyền Việt Nam) is housed in a unique traditional building in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 10. One of two Fito Museums, it offers an in-depth look at the fascinating world of traditional Vietnamese medicine, which is heavily influenced by Chinese philosophy.

The museum features a collection of almost 3000 items in relation to traditional remedies, some of which date back to the Stone Age. Visitors can browse the vast and detailed displays of some of the instruments used to prepare traditional medicines, such as mortars and pestles, grinders, and knives. There is also a large collection of books and documents on the subject.

Particularly interesting are the items found in traditional pharmacies, such as scales, printing molds, medicine cabinets, and a variety of pottery and ceramic pieces. The museum is also fitted with audiovisual equipment, which it uses to screen a documentary about the history of traditional medicine in Vietnam.

Saigon - History And CultureDay Trips

Saigon - History And Culture

Economic capital of Vietnam, Hồ Chí Minh-City is a bulimic city, frenetic, enterprising and rebellious, commercial, southern and tropical. Placed in the loop of a nonchalant river, in the heart of a low and wet plain of bright green, Hồ Chí Minh-City, which everyone here continues to call Saigon (its name before 1975), has known 95 years of French influence, supported the Americans, resisted the bureaucracy of the North. Today, she shows an insolent economic dynamism and her standard of living is higher than the rest of Vietnam.
