There were SO MANY paintings here. Downstairs where the sculptures and a variety of art are, it's really interesting but I just got bogged down in the end by TOO MANY paintings.

Has a few fine exhibitions but lacks a path through the museum. There is no audio guide and almost no explanations about the items. If you in the area take a look, otherwise dont bother.

A great two hour break from the hot streets and hustle and bustle of the city. Old and new and everything in between. A must-see in Hanoi!

Really good selection of art covering over 1000 years. Only problem there was no cafe. There was a wonderful ceramic display in the basement, well worth a visit if art is your thing

The Fine Arts Museum had surprisingly more pieces of art than I had anticipated. For 40,000 dong for adults, you get to experience the full gamut of the history of art in Vietnam including a room that housed some interesting contemporary pieces. Worth a stopover...More
