Description: Enter a magical place where five centuries-old folktales bring to life the culture and traditions of Viet Nam. Aspects of modern day life in Viet Nam are interwoven with the presentation of old folktale in interactive "theaters." Traditions explored include wedding ceremonies, ancestral worship practices, cultural dances, and the Vietnamese bonds to their land and water. The exhibit demonstrates the connection between folktales and the enduring values and traditions they represent. The exhibit runs through January 8, 2012.
