Unusual art

Lacquer paintings and political art are the highlights, off the beaten path from the art usually seen by western tourists, and zero crowds even on the Tet holiday

This is an excellent art museum, that starts in the lower level with a superb ceramic collection and goes up several floors to see all the art forms collected from Vietnamese artists over the centuries. Give yourself a lot of time or come back a second time!

I would rate this a must see. The museum offers a wide variety of artwork, from current, to Hindu/Buddhist, patriotic, statues, contemporary, etc. The works are of good quality and admission is less than two bucks.

We like to find the Fine Arts Museums in the capital cities we visit becaue it gives us a window on what's going on in the life of a country and city that would be hard to see while walking around neighborhoods. Contemporary art as well as classical art gives one a chance to see under the fabric of busy... More

Very much organized - as it should be - around the (North) Vietnams point of view. Gives another perspective to the local culture

Vast rooms and floors of artwork. Evocative portraits of the war years were particularly moving, but so much more and such a variety of ancient and more modern styles and techniques
