What people are saying:

Come to this art museum if only for the gorgeous colonial-style building where the ancient and modern art is housed. There are many parts to this museum, and don't miss the building at the end which has ancient sculpture. There was a special exhibition going on when I visited but it was rather small and no signage or information in English about the artist or artists. The main hall has a few floors of mainly modern art following the war in the 1970s and a few significant Vietnamese artists from the 20th century are showcased here. Spend an hour or so exploring the different rooms and hallways filled with mainly oil and lacquer paintings.

    Wonderful well worth a visit

    The art work is varied and variable in quality but the setting is the star. A lovely exterior and the kind of slightly shabby interior that says so much about the city.

    A little old fashioned but ...

    We really enjoyed this gallery. The presentation is a little dated and the place could do with a face lift, but it is well worth a visit. There is some really good stuff in here.

    Buildings are great

    Buildings are spectacular but with the exception of the air conditioned rooms upstairs the collection is poorly presented and curated. Which could be excused were it a good collection but it is not.
