This art museum literally blew me away with the number and the quality of art products. There are many paintings, sculptures and photos with many different styles and were created from the past to the present. My friend and I spent more than two hours enjoying all the works in this museum. There are 3 different buildings to present works... More

Not really worth the trouble to find it. It wasn’t too far from our hotel so we walked. The buildings themselves are quite impressive old colonial style. The contents inside were really very average indeed being mostly modern and not particularly appealing to us.

As art lovers we tend to visit museums wherever we go. This museum limits itself to Vietnamese art, which was ok, except that but for a few pictures we really liked, we found the art to lack dimension and perspective and appear quite flat. The building did not appear well-kept up--we noticed dusty furniture in the hallways. But for the... More

Difficult to see how this museum can protect their paintings without air conditioning. I went to building 1 to view the special exhibit. I also purchased a book on Vietnamese art that is sold only in Vietnam.

Apart from the ridiculously low entrance fee, this is one of the best galleries we've visited in this part of the world. Beautiful if crumbling old building, some stunning artwork, and a wonderful old Saigon setting. Easy to pass a couple of hours plus away from the heat. Peaceful, relaxing, nice coffee shop. Recommended.

For a non art lover it's an ok place to spend up to an hour. Very cheap entrance fee. I enjoy seeing these buildings sometimes more than their contents. The museum occupies three buildings which are spotlessly clean. There is also a nice coffee shop in the grounds.

At 10,000 dong a person, this museum is a steal! And they are fairly mellow about the whole experience. They don't hassle you to check your bags in the lockers, etc. I found the ancient building disappointing, but the temporary exhibition building to be by far the most interesting art in the museum. Currently they have a show on watercolor... More

We had a nice few hours of visiting paintings from Vietnamese artists inside a beautiful building what needs some TLC (tender loving care)

You can spend two hours or more going through the three buildings and multiple floors of artwork here. Majority of the works are paintings, but there are sculptures too. Most of the work also comes from the last half of the twentieth century, but one building houses sculptures and crafts from Angkor period and before.
