Great selection of art in an amazing French colonial building from a time gone by. Nice collection over an extensive range of periods.

Was quite interesting seeing the mixture of paintings and sculptures however I feel would definitely be more worthwhile with a guide to get a more in depth perspective on the stories behind the artwork

Two three-storey buildings without aircon or elevators make up the Museum. Most of the art is less than 60 years old and local and displated in one building. Some pieces were extraordinary and unique. The second building, on the left, seems to be used more...More

The buildings themselves could be beautiful, but they are poorly maintained. The collection of modern art in the basement is cool, but it is lacking in anything of classical or historical interest. I'd give it a pass.

The fine arts museum is positioned in an old French colonial building. Walking distance from my hotel in District 1. So much varying artwork! Didn't realize Vietnam had such a rich artistic history. An enlightening experience!
