The reason why this place is called the World Coffee Museum is that they were built to introduce the history of coffee and spread the coffee culture in Vietnam and around the world.

The museum has only been in operation for more than 3 years from November 24, 2018. However, it has soon become viral all over the country and attracts a large number of tourists coming to visit DakLak.

It is a 100-acre property in the central highland province of Dak Lak that boasts spectacular views and a museum like no other. The building, engulfed in curved archways, is inspired by long-houses, a local architectural style of the Ede, an ethnic minority group in the country. Inside, the museum—in partnership with Germany’s Kaffeemuseum Burg (Museum of Coffee)—displays more than 10,000 coffee artifacts from around the world.

Visitors are encouraged to smell, taste, and touch coffee beans as they learn about the history and migratory patterns of the drink. Some of the earliest objects come from Vietnam, showcasing tools and instruments used by farmers to harvest the bean before its industrialization.
