Love the architecture but the exhibits is so boring and less items. It is quite far from center and make sure it is not attractive tourist.

I mean the exterior is better than the interior. They could have this a better place for the local and tourist. Seriously don't even bother coming this place unless u have nthg to do. The hygiene in the wash room is also horrendous

It's a waste of goverment money to build this one and now it's nearly becoming a parking lot. The architecture is weird maybe i'm not good at admiring it but for me I just feel nothing and waste of time to come here.

Only two of the four floors were open. Everything was in Vietnamese and as a foreigner I didn't understand a thing. In some parts, the lights were broken. It was like walking through an old garage with only one light bulb hanging from the ceiling....More

This is a truly boring, neglected and not interesting museum. No wonder it's free of charge. While the architecture of the building is lovely from the outside, the dull interiors and the lack of ANY interesting exhibits or English explanations of the exhibits - make...More

The museum had 3 floors and one was closed. Still, the collection is enjoyable, especially if you love 100 year old exquisite vases, clocks, watches, weapons, etc. that belonged to either the Vietnamese or the French in Vietnamese. I will never forget this one black...More
