“Fine Arts Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The collection of artworks is very interesting, especially the pieces produced after French colonisation and the lacquered works. It was a nice way to spend a steamy afternoon.

“Undergoing renovations but fascinating nonetheless”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

The Fine Arts Museum consists of two buildings, one directly across from the main gates and one to the right. The one to the right was mostly textiles and pottery, although the pottery display in the basement was closed due to renovations. The textile displays were moderately interesting.

The main building, opposite the gates, had some excellent displays of ancient artifacts, definitely well worth a visit. Also some modern paintings and sculptures.

The front gate asks that you leave your knapsacks in a locker in the front gatehouse. We did that initially but after seeing many people carrying their packs and waterbottles around, retrieved our stuff. There was supposed to be an attendant in the locker-room but no one was staffing it.

“Another Perspective on Vietnam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Ordinarily I am not into this sort of thing. But the artwork was impressive and varying. It could have done with a few more desciptive palques to give you a greater feel in certain contexts. But I was pleasantly surprised - a welcome way to escape the heat and humidity.
