300k vnđ if you bring camera
Nov 2020 • Solo
I went there alone. Very quiet. 30% sale off ticket. But the woman who sells tickets asked me to give 300k vnd cause I bring camera. They don't care if I go solo or an commercial ekip, professional camera or not. Well, I walked away. Shame that foreigners keep asking why Vietnamese not interested in art or something like that. Here's the reason.

Wonderful well worth a visit
Mar 2020
The art work is varied and variable in quality but the setting is the star. A lovely exterior and the kind of slightly shabby interior that says so much about the city.

A little old fashioned but ...
Mar 2020
We really enjoyed this gallery. The presentation is a little dated and the place could do with a face lift, but it is well worth a visit. There is some really good stuff in here.

Buildings are great
Mar 2020 • Solo
Buildings are spectacular but with the exception of the air conditioned rooms upstairs the collection is poorly presented and curated. Which could be excused were it a good collection but it is not.

Impressive building...
Feb 2020 • Friends
Unfortunately, again Ho Chi Minh City museum are a bit disappointing!
The building is marvellous as well the history behind it (Franco-China residence) and we managed to use the lift (the first lift installed in Saigon) before they realised that was left open (I do not think you are supposed to use it: lack of health and safety for sure!).
Done bits of the modern paintings are good and building 3 that house pottery and carvings and bronze is definitely more attractive to me. Will I go back? No!

French style Architecture
Dec 2019 • Friends
We got here a bit too late so didn’t have enough time to browse through all the art works. The museum has 3 floors and focuses on artworks especially of Vietnamese culture/people. The architecture itself is very beautiful and stunning, designed by a French architect. It’s definitely worth the visit if you’re in HCM city!

Spooky faded elegance
Feb 2020 • Friends
Exploring these large, crumbling colonial buildings was fascinating. Be sure to read the description of the buildings’ history (to the left of the main entrance). The collection is random, and the smaller buildings don’t have much to offer. But the main building has a lot of interesting modern art. Even though the signage is terrible, we enjoyed looking at all the ways artists have portrayed the American War.

The building outshines the exhibits
Feb 2020 • Couples
Worth visiting to admire the architecture of the three buildings housing mostly relatively recent exhibits. Any artistic value in the exhibits is lost by the poor lighting at the displays. Information about the exhibits is also lacking. In need of an upgrade.

The amazing paintings
Jan 2020 • Solo
Beautiful museum. Mostly captures the war and its affects in every day vietnam. Easily spent 2-3 hours. The only problem for me was that there was no AC. I hate being hot, and i felt my experience would have been so much better of the place had air conditioning. Still highly recommend visiting the place though
