If you look for propaganda arts, this is a place for you. The layout is a bit confusing though. It looks like the museum is working on adding more "free thinking" arts. This shows went you go to the "folklore" section. In comparison to the value of Soviet propaganda arts in recent years, I believe that some of the paintings... More

A pretty decent collection of local art. Three floors of old sculptures and paintings from nearly a thousand years ago until the early 2000s.

Fine overview of art from the 70-ies, a Vietnamese perspective on the war, on oppression, much propaganda art of limited artistic value. Also some ancient sculptures, great examples of lacquer painting. A bit tiring to visit room after room lined up along long corridors.

Way better than its HCM counterpart. Forgettable first floor with copies and reproductions. Second and third floors, a few good pieces but whoever curated made a terrible job, Everything scattered around with little sense beside a (vague) chronological order. Two small and very surprising rooms with some pieces from the vietnamese contemporary scene. This part should be expanded. Blows out... More

This is a great place to spend a few hours looking at the various styles of Vietnamese art, and the motivations and influences that have shaped it.

Visit the Viet Nam Fine-arts Museum (Bao Tang My thuật) to see modern and ancient fine art. Its very close to the Temple of Literature meaning you can probably spend a day doing both sites and in between you can eat at Koto training restaurant which is also very close by. Crossing the street between the two places can be... More

This is a must-see. Lots of great artwork. My favorite were the contemporary arts. The historic artworks are very interesting too but too many of the same things.

Depending on how much you like your art you could spend 3+ hours here. The main building is mostly revolutionary paintings besides the bottom floor of ancient sculpture. There's also a small section of modern art here. Make sure to visit the secondary building (to your left as you first enter the gates) which for me was much more interesting,... More

Great museum, much better than expected. Definitely worth a tour if you're around. Our daughters also very much enjoyed it.
