I truly enjoyed the visit of mine to this particular Museum, it was cool and quiet and the art a fascinating mixture of painting and sculpture. Certainly recommended.

So many interesting works of art but little in the way of explanation. Still worth checking out. Multiple floors to see. (October 2018)

The museum had a wide collection of ancient and modern art, which filled up 3 stories of the building. A great way to enjoy Vietnamese art while having a quiet and air-conditioned place to roam about for a few hours.

I adore fine arts and this particular museum/art gallery is fanatic, I'd suggest to other art lovers. Spread more than 3 or 4 floors, there's plenty to view. I actually appreciated the war images. There was interesting sculptures and great use of lighting.

The museum is spread over a selection of floors having a souvenir shop which is well stocked and fairly priced. The bronze sculptures were some of my favourites. Art works from generations ago are showing the age of theirs but fascinating nevertheless.

From the French architectural period, the Museum in divided into three pavilions. A wonderful cross section of Vietnamese traditional art to the latest high tech digital art.

I spent a few working hours in the museum. A lot of fascinating paintings reflecting upon Vietnamese historical past and culture. A lot of the paintings heavily affected by French artistic moves. On the grounds are a few big sculptures, several of which are very...More

I can't remember seeing any signs about this. But most of the galleries did not have staff in them so I took photos when I was there anyway.
