This is a very nice museum with a range of art and artifacts. Entrace fee is about 0.50$ so well worth it.

This art museum is a bit underwhelming and really is a shame that the building and collection are not better maintained. The building itself is a wonderful old French colonial building filled with stained glass windows that are sadly crumbling. It needs to be renovated...More

Three run down colonial buildings full of Communist proper gander - to be avoided except the rather well done cafe in the grounds.

I enjoyed the beautiful building and the plethora of enviable floor tiles, perhaps more than the extensive collection of art. But then I am not much of an art connoisseur. An enjoyable way to spend an hour or two. No air con but plenty of...More

Entrance fee is only VND10,000. The museum houses many paintings and sculptures. It would be a great place to visit for art lovers. Some art works are covered in dust. It's too hot and stuffy. Not equipped with air-conditions.

I am not a creative arty guy but spent an hour here going thru the rooms. Did not appreciate most of it but generally ok. Dirt cheap to enter and the art outside and pretty building was pleasing on the eye.

The lovely building, with its' stained glass windows, antique lift, and fabulous painted walls (in parts) is worth a visit for its' own sake. I wasn't moved by much of the art, although I did like some. However, the building alone is worth it. It...More

Lots of good artworks in the collection, both indoors and outside. The buildings are interesting to explore too. There's no air-conditioning so it gets hot, but thankfully there are fans placed around the buildings. Not so good for the artworks though, some of them are...More

Top quality museum set in two old colonial multistory buildings, one which contains current contemporary exhibits.One gets a good view of the progression of Vietnamese art(primarily paintings) from Western-like to uniquely Vietnamese. A lot of their works revolve around wars and Ho Chi Minh themes....More

I think John P is correct: I remember that the museum closes for one hour around lunch time. In case you are there at that time, there are pleasant restaurants close by, from the simple but tasty food stalls inside Ben Thanh... More
