We visited the Fine Arts Museum a few years ago. In my travel log, I wrote that the couple of hours we'd spent there hadn't been enough, so next trip we're planning to spend an entire morning or afternoon. It offers a fascinating spectrum of...More

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

Spent around an hour here looking at the spot art. In general, there weren't lots of folks around and definitely the pathway through the gallery is somewhat of confusion but one may get lots of artworks to see. There is certainly a major emphasis on...More

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 adore fine arts and this particular museum/art gallery is fanatic, I'd suggest to other art lovers. Spread more than 3 or 4 floors, there's plenty to view. I actually appreciated the war images. There was interesting sculptures and great use of lighting.

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.
