I'm not overly interested in Art, but for a dollar AUSD entry we thought we would check it out. The art is amazing and some of the techniques used are way beyond anything I've seen in any other museum

We enjoyed this art museum. The ground floor starts off with Vietnams pre history. The first objects you are looking at are bronze and stone artefacts. The giant Buddhas and Gods are amazing. As you move through to the second and third floors, you are viewing oil paintings and Lino prints. These contemporary works give insight into the recent past... More

I confess that I do like museums. So spending nearly three hours here may seem excessive to some but there is just SO much to see! The museum is located at the far end of The Temple of Literature, which attracts lots of visitors. So I am not sure why we were two of perhaps only a dozen visitors. The... More

Not a big art buff but do like a good piece of art. There were some really interesting pieces in here and descriptions in French and English. If you're really into art it's definitely worth a visit. Would have been made better by some further background information about the painters and art periods - there's a little but not much.

Housed in two adjoining French colonial buildings. Large number of varying types of ceramics on the lower level of the left hand building. Graphic arts and applied arts on the second level. in the other building, I particularly liked the lacquered art as well as silk art. There are a large number of very well done middle 20th century paintings... More

We found this museum rather tedious as the art work was not very appealing to us as Westerners. I generally enjoy art galleries but this one didn't appeal, it was dull and tedious.

Really worth a visit. Great respite from the crazy streets of Hanoi. Also across the road from the Temple of Literature. Great quality displays which were a lot cleaner than 5 years ago. Gives you a great insight into Viet culture and history. Stunning Buddhas and interesting ceramics display. Nice shop too which is a little tucked away but worth... More
