This museum, while quite interesting, is really terribly small, the pictures on this page shows almost the whole length of it. The museum consist of a single room with lots of furniture, and some smaller objects from different periods of Vietnam history. The garden outside displays some old canons. While quite interesting, don't plan more than 1h in there. Entrance... More

We didn't go to this museum, but went to the Le Ba Dang Art Musuem located at 15 Le Loi Street. This is a good collection of a very famous Vietnamese artist and we found his art to be very beautiful and it was well presented. We're not sure why this attraction is not on trip advisor, but if you... More

Disappointing, disappointing, disappointing. More enjoyable to spend your time outside in the heat negotiating with the local cycle rickshaw drivers which is neither enjoyable nor fun. Glad we did it just to make sure we didn't miss something otherwise exciting. Don't bother...

A free electric car takes you to the Museum from the Imperial City otherwise I might not have made it. Shoes off before you enter the building which is really a large room with some furniture and china. The building is attractive. The garden is nice with some sculpture and there's an interesting plant nursery down the road from it.

This museum houses some china, porcelain and furniture from the Imperial Palace. It is interesting to see, but there is very little information about it. The dates are very vague and there are very few descriptions. The house itself is very nice.

There is nothing in here worth mentioning or seeing except for the WC which is unusually clean for Vietnamese standards.

The museum is included in the Citadel ticket (not in the combined ticket). But I think it is not worth it. It's more a small traditional style house with an amazing architecture and very well preserved. Inside you can find pottery, few kimonos and furniture. No INFO about the pieces. It doesn't look a museum at all. Less than 30... More

the impression is nice, but there's not enough information and exhibits in there... you get a ticket to this museum together with the ticket to Imperial City anyway; but otherwise one could skip it.

Entry to here is included in your Citadel ticket so make sure you come here AFTERWARDS and get the whole picture Start with the video in the little modern room near the entrance before going into the old big building All spic and span now with...

I spent a couple of hours here and I think there was one other person that came through while I was there. Its a wonderful building and that alone makes it worth the visit, but the treasures it houses are also amazing. There are some beautiful things in the museum, and some rather odd and interesting things. There are some... More
