This museum is for art enthusiasts and historians. It is not particularly well maintained and the museum does not hold the best pieces master artists. Worth while to just visit for a sense of the cultural and artistic depth of the very good and creative paintings that Hanoi is known for.

Today I visited the Hanoi Fine Arts Museum on a cold wet winter’s day in Northern Vietnam. A fair-sized building in the middle if town, it has three floors, all connected by stairs at either end of the spacious building. At each side of the impressive edifice there are both genders of toilets located helpfully just by the stairways. Each... More

If you are at all interested in Vietnamese art, and not just the tourist pictures of girls in ao dai then a visit to the Fine Arts Museum is a must. There are some amazing sculptures from temples and collections of paintings that show the development of different styles of Vietnamese painting. Don't buy art in Hanoi until you have... More

if you are a fan of Fine Arts, this place must be in your list while being in Ha Noi. At first, there you can see pictures of modern images of Vietnam and at the same time old ones.

We visited today on a cold rainy day. The museum was not heated at all and very cold inside. But what treasures inside! A lovely collection from the ancient to the 20th century. Much more well-cared for than the Fine Arts Museum in Ho Chi Minh City. A great way to spend a rainy morning.

I would sincerely recommend this museum. They have a very nice, small collection of artworks that are rarely found in Vietnam!

I did not expect this to be a highlight, especially with children aged 11 and 13. But I wanted to see it so I made them go. They actually really enjoyed it, as did I. As I said to the kids, art can tell you a lot about the culture and history of a place. Often it is only through... More
