We took a cab from the old quarter because the city (like every other cosmopolitan area of Vietnam) is not particularly walkable for longer distances. When we got there, surprised at the quality and scope of works. They have very ancient stonework/masonry and wood work from centuries ago to more modern/present-day artist. Empty except for a few expats like ourselves,... More

It isn't Musee D'orsay nor the Guggenheim but is was very enjoyable and worth a visit. It is not expensive and there were many pieces of art that were original in concept and execution and were also enjoyable. As well there were obvious pieces that reflected some well known art such as the piece "Sunflowers" by Van Gogh. I was... More

If you love art this is worth some time. There are some truly exquisite pieces of art here. And it offers a perspective on the Vietnamese people, their history and their formative experience. If you like art this is worth some time. If you're not into art, you'll be bored.

As with the Fine Arts museum in HCM city this is a rewarding experience. Quite diverse but my highlight were the lacquer paintings which took me by surprise with their quality, depth and warmth.

I'm not an art or museum buff, but I really enjoyed this museum. I spent about 2 hours wandering through the displays which is longer than I would typically spend at a museum. There's a great mix of arts from across the eras, including some really impressive modern Vietnamese art. The giant (maybe 2 metre tall) Buddhist monks and the... More

My initial expectation was that this is another museum since the original was badly damaged during the war. This location contracted expectation as the restored buildings and locale was used by locals as a photographic backdrop. Excellent floral decor was groomed in its respective places. This place is suitable for all ages.

Well worth a visit. As artists, my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed this art museum. Very well kept, varied, interesting and original styles. Fantastic.

The museum is well-maintained and serene (somehow, despite the blaring horns outside), with a fine collection of art from throughout the centuries. The older works and the silk paintings are not to be missed, and save some time and energy for the extensive collections in the second building. You won't find everything to your liking, but it's a great place... More

This Museum is very well kept, clean and very nice presentation. I have to say that it is a bit difficult to find your way round so better signage or numbering of rooms would be very helpful. Having said this the artwork on show is just stunning. The layout also great and it is kept very clean. We came in... More

Unlike some museums this one is well laid out it is clean and obviously cared for. A great place to see ancient Chinese, Hindu and other relics.
