Art Museum Museum
Marvel at the thousand-eyed, thousand-armed image of Guan Yin, a 17th-century Hindu-style stone sculpture, at Vietnam Fine Arts Museum. The country's primary art museum tells a comprehensive story of the fine arts in Vietnam across three levels. Ranging from ancient antiques to modern art and folk paintings, the collection's pieces include early sandstone sculpture and an elegantly carved Buddha image dated 1057. Housed in two 1930s colonial French ministry buildings, the museum gives you insight into the range of Vietnamese art--from prehistoric times to modern patriotic epics and soul-searching abstract compositions. Guided tours are available in English.

  • Amazing escape from the chaos of the city. This place was a wonderful and cool refuge. The museum is much larger than I expected with some amazing art works. As others said, it could benefit from more explanations but I don't go to a museum to spend all my time reading so I enjoyed just taking in the art work and the walk through Vietnam's history.
  • Rather good place. Clean, large, lot of staffs ready to help, hygiene toilet in a historic building. A lot of stunning works. If you are interested in Vn art, cannot omit this place
  • Good place to know the art and history. They serve the history start from the ancient until modern arts. worth to visit!
  • Amazing collection of ancient and modern art. From sculptures, ceramics, paintings, textiles, etc. It will be 5 stars but it lacks a better explanation of each item. There are lockers.
  • It is amazing! A very comprehensive collection and I really enjoy my stay there
