“Prepare to Spend a Couple Hours”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

This museum is deceptively large. There is limited variety of art in Vietnam compared to what we might be accustomed to from the West. What is here is worth the visit, however. You will see the history of Vietnam expressed in art. The museum was much larger than I expected, so prepare to spend a couple of leisure hours wandering through the many floors and sections.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

This is just across the road from the Temple of Literature, and a lovely old building, so we went in to see what was on offer. It gives a good insight into the various art forms in Vietnamese history, but we especially liked the paintings, which reflect the turbulent history of the country but in a beautiful and creative way. A very worthwhile visit.

Reviewed September 16, 2013

I want to see more big paintings and sculpture, but I love some of the paintings, Please ask for the direction before going there, we get lost when we get there since they don't have big signs on the outside

“Overwhelming due to the amount of artwork”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Was interesting but for each different style there was a large amount of artwork which made it overwhelming. Could have been a lot more concise.
