While the work in this museum is interesting from an historical perspective, with the exception of some 17th and 18th century lacquered wood sculptures, most of the art is not terribly impressive.

Very interesting with works from the eleventh century to present day. We found the sculpture fascinating and the painting naive and very propaganda driven. But for all that a great afternnon giving a considerable insight into N Vietnam culture.

This is an interesting Museum - the building itself has wide open spaces and is rarely crowded. It's very cheap to visit ( about 40,000VND). The early sections are amazing looking at the prehistoric works of bronze, the early paintings and some really fascinating costumes....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.
