We were disappointed after our visit. The museum has a few levels but all in all we didn't saw many artpieces that we found really interesting, well made or intriguing. There isn't much, mostly non at all, information accompanied with the pieces but that seems to be the standard in the Asian museums. Also in comparison with the modern arts... More

An oasis of tranquility opposite the hectic temple of literature. Beautiful artifacts on the first floor, but more interesting 20th century paintings on the second. Currently hosting a beautiful exhibit of propaganda posters small entrance fee and well worth it.

Wonderful selection of art. Especially of interest the works from around the time of the war with America. Wonderful ancient examples of the culture also. Cheap entry. Quiet and just near the temple of literature so well worth locating.

As well as late 20th century art and some modern artists from 40s thought 80s they have sculptures and ceramics from 11th century. Normally they will have a guest artist on show for extended period in one of the wings. Old colonial building is very interesting and the ceramic exhibition is down in the basement. I felt this building would... More

Fabulous combination of museum and fine art gallery, a thorough emersion in Vietnamese material and visual culture. Initial visit with a group wasn't enough, so returned for a more leisurely perusal. Would go back a third time if ever in Hanoi!

Although the museum is small, what they have is generally good. Everything in the collection, plus a lot more can be seen in the histroy museum, so it really isn't worth the extra trip!

There are 2 buildings on the property of this museum. Don't spend too much time in the first one (as you enter, on your left). The second building hosts a far more appealing and significant collection of local paintings and statues.

I visit fine art museums wherever I go, but the art museums in Vietnam (Hanoi and HMC) are not overwhelming, the exhibitions could be presented better. It is still worth a visit, as locetd in a colonial building and you get an overview about art troughout the centuries.
