The fine arts museum offers a good historical perspective of Vietnamese art as well as a small contemporary exhibit. We found that the pieces were in various conditions from those that were exquisite to some which were showing signs of wear. There are extensive examples of sculpture, lacquer work, and silk painting. Our favorite exhibit were the thought provoking paintings... More

Everytime I'm in Ha Noi I visit this museum and often several times. Partly because of what they show, but also because of the people who work in the museum. During the years they did become friends and I always feel proud when they show me the new things they did develop, especiallt for children.

The Museum of Fine Arts in Hanoi was well worth a visit. It is accessible and nicely divided into three stories. Fine Arts from the 11th - 19th century on the ground floor; Paintings and contemporary sculptures and Folk art on the first floor and silk, and oil paintings as well as a creative space for children on the third...

We walked to this museum from our hotel even though we were advised to get a taxi - we love to look around a city and it wasn't really that far - it was very hot though. It was worth the walk - I loved it - there are displays over 2 buildings. I always think you can get to... More

Yes that's a gross exaggeration but there is a ton of impressionistic art here that is beautiful and captivating. And they have AC. The ceramics in the basement are skippable, the 2nd floor is the highlight.

The best pieces are the lacquered work, traditional art form of Vietnam. The Buddhist wooden statues from the 1700s are also quite magnificent. I wasn't particularly interested in the art, and the descriptions of the pieces are lacking, but this is a good place for a stroll on a rainy day. There are three floors of exhibitions. Make sure you... More

This museum is highly recommended for arts lovers. The 3-floor building houses hundreds of Vietnamese paints and sculptures. The contemporary section is my favorite.

Good collection and some of the Vietnamese stuff is really worth looking at. A bit sombre at times, but that's not bad when escaping the sweltering heat.
