To understand the ethnic minorities, there is no better place than the Dak Lak Museum.
Completed in 2011, this museum resembles a gigantic longhouse but is inspired by the best lessons of Vietnam modernism.
With over 10.000 objects on display, visitors can pick up knowledge about the cultures of 44 ethnic groups living in Dak Lak.
