The main interest of this museum resides in the buildings themselves. The collection they host is of very limited interest

This was a very pleasant surprise, with an extensive collection of art of all genres. The absolute highlight for us was the 2 rooms of embroidery in building 2 - think embroidery's not your thing? I challenge you not to be impressed by this collection!

Fascinating local art displaying in the well-kept old building, non air-conditioned spaces though. Free entry.

We came here to kill some time during the daytime. The buildings themselves are interesting and worth the visit (google it, the Guggenheim has a nice little write up of the building's history). It's only $1 USD for a ticket, and it's great, quiet break...More

We loved walking throughout all 3 floors of the Fine Arts Museum. Each painting and sculpture is 'artfully' displayed. You can learn a lot about the French influences on modern Vietnamese painting by slowly walking through the many, many rooms. Interestingly, the paintings are grouped...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
