FITO Museum – Ho Chi Minh City

Fito Museum, also called Vietnam Traditional Medicine museum is a private museum in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. This very first museum of traditional medicine in Vietnam has been skillfully crafted with stunning interiors made from wood.

The core collection of the museum contains over 3,000 varieties of traditional Vietnamese medicines dating back to the Stone Ages. The collection also includes different tools that were used in the preparation of these medicines such as knives, grinders, mortars and pestles as well as an assortment of pots and jars.

Some of these 2,500 year old knives, grinders, mortars and pestles used at that time for preparing the medicinal concoctions were brought from the homes of two of the founders of Vietnamese traditional medicine, Tue Tinh and Hai Thuong Lan Ong – Le Huu Trac.

Visitors can move around the museum and experience a personal demonstration of the use of a grinding pot, watch a documentary about the history of Vietnamese traditional medicine or taste a cup of linh chi tea before leaving the museum. After the tour, visitors can even have a consultation with experienced oriental doctors.
