How to Get There
The Museum of Trade Ceramics is located at 80 Tran Phu Street, in the center of the Ancient Town UNESCO World Heritage Site. Because the Old Town is pedestrianized, the museum can only be reached on foot. Most visitors prefer to visit as part of a guided tour of the Old Town in order to skip the hassle of navigation.
When to Get There
The museum is open daily from 8am to 5pm. If you’re looking to explore the Old Town and want to beat the crowds, try to arrive as early as possible. Sunrise is a magical time to wander along the riverside.
Purchasing a Hoi An Old Town Ticket
Although you don’t technically need an admission ticket to explore Hoi An Ancient Town—checks are very loosely enforced unless you’re with a tour guide—you need to purchase a pass to enter certain museums and heritage houses, including the Museum of Trade Ceramics. The cost of the 24-hour ticket required to access five of the 22 heritage sites goes toward the restoration and upkeep of the UNESCO World Heritage Site’s historic structures.
