It's a good mixture of old and new art and very enjoyable. Some of the paintings are hard to see as the colors already got dark/faded, but overall it gives a very good impression on art in SE Asia. I especially enjoyed the lacqered paintings...More

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 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.
