This big museum, close to the back of the Temple of Literature, has so much to offer. The historical section has bronze drums, sculptures, Cham art, bronzes & much more. As well as paintings, there are sections on costumes, ceramics & ethnology.

The French Colonial Building is the right setting for this museum. As you go through it, you get a peek at Vietnam's history as expressed by its own people.
