This place is like a hidden gem in Hanoi where not so many people visit it on a regular basis. So it is quiet, calm and you basically have the whole gallery for yourself even during the weekend. In here, you can find old to new art works of Vietnamese artist, from the beautiful Budda sculpture to the new oil... More

This museum is well worth a visit if you are an arts and cultural buff. Be prepared to spend a couple of hours at least as there's lots to see and appreciate from the paintings to antique relics to local tribal costumes, ceramics and more. Some rooms are well air conditioned while others aren't (can get quite warm). Plenty of... More

It's only a fairly small three storey building with mostly paintings, but also some sculpture and rock carvings. A surprising amount of the work seems to be themed around war. There is a good souvenir shop at the back.

Lots to see - allow at least 2 hours, and don't miss the annexe which has an especially good exhibition of ethnic arts

Thankfully, this museum is temperature controlled protect the artwork from ancient times to modern. We found the modern works very enjoyable. This museum is better than the Fine Arts Museum in Saigon. At 40,000 dongs (less than $2) it is a bargain!

Highly recommended. We spent a half day. No busloads of tourists come here. I especially enjoyed the traditional and contemporary lacquerware and woodcut works.

Fine Arts Museum (Bao Tang My Thuat) Yes. It's the name to remember among the arts-lovers. I always look for the galleries and museums wherever I visit. Vietnamese artists are among my favorites. Time was short and half day was not enough for me to get the insight of the artists.
