Great collection of Vietnamese fine art from traditional prints and folk art to impressive contemporary laquer paintings and sculptures - also air-conditioned so a great way to spend a hot afternoon.

In the middle of the day, when many Hanoians are resting (including a few of the gallery monitors) we found this a welcome respite from the bustle of the streets and our schedule. We opted to visit from the top down, taking our tour backwards in history. The upper galleries were nicely done, and we particularly enjoyed the silk paintings... More

Found this museum very rewarding some of the artwork covering the revolutionary period were evocative and really revealing. The museum is calm and well laid out, I was really glad I visited

This museum is set in an old mansion. It is surprisingly well set up. The art is well spaced out. And there is some air conditioning. The museum has a fabulous selection of modern and contemporary art. HOWEVER, the art is not the most well preserved or maintained. If you have been to Europe or some of the world's top... More

Starting with some brilliant old stone and wood sculptures, moving on to European influences, propaganda paintings, and 21st century wildness, this museum has a bit of everything. I did find the war era stuff a little corny for my tastes. What I found strange, is that the gift shop has tons of original art for sale, much of it more... More

Museum is worth to visit if You are interested of local art. Its very different from this, what European eyes are used to see. Museum is quite spacious and AC is very good inside so You can enjoy art in good atmosphere

I almost took this spot off the itinerary but thank god I didn't. We spent 2 hours here and it was of our favorite attractions in Hanoi. Incredible ancient art and 15th and 16th century carvings plus a stunning folk arts collection. Check out the gift shops for great gifts to bring home to your people,

There are some amazing pieces of art in the collection. We had limited time and rushed our walk through the museum to be able to take everything in. Leave a full morning/afternoon if possible. We loved seeing the unique pieces and given most pieces aren't behind class and you can literally walk right up to them. They allow photography (disappointingly... More

There is a little bit of something for everyone here who appreciates art. Nice Colonial building, with items nicely spaced out in different rooms & levels. I particularly enjoyed the artwork. Well worth a visit.

It is about 10 minutes by taxi from the First Hotel or you can walk (about 20 minutes). It is located in the embassy area with French designed buldings. The museum presents various paintings of the Vietnamese authors in the past and at present. You will be thrilled with collections.
