Housed in a recently renovated colonial building, this museum contains the finest display of artwork in all the country, and so is a must do for anyone interested in art. Its three floors contain examples from all periods up to the present, and the variety of media is particularly impressive. Wood carvings, ceramic statues, and lacquered furniture stand beside silk, oil, and watercolour paintings, and the high level of skill is apparent throughout. Unlike the Temple of Literature, which is almost opposite, this museum is not crowded with tour groups, so it's possible to wander around and take in the artwork without distractions. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Hanoi itinerary 2 days.

  • Not too much to see. Only cost 40K Dong so if you have time it is worth seeing. Lovely old building. Love the works in the 1940s. The coconut coffee in the coffee shop in the compound was very delicious.

  • Beautiful building and interesting albeit disorganized art exhibits. Well worth a visit, particularly on a rainy day. I wish they had more art works from contemporary Vietnamese artists. There’s a room tucked on the far end that includes some amazing pieces.

  • Mixture of ancient and modern work. Went in not knowing a great deal about Vietnamese art and learnt a lot! Tons of beautiful work which really caught us. Larger then expected and ended up spending way longer then planned as got so absorbed. Only negative was that there was no gift shop as would have liked to buy some postcards of the works

  • Of course, it can't be compared with European museums in terms of collection size and interior but still a curious place to visit. They don't offer any tours in English so it's just walking around the rooms and looking at the pictures on your own. It took me around 40 min I guess. The price is very affordable - 40k.

  • A beautiful gallery displaying the history of Vietnamese art right from the Paleolithic to the modern day. A huge impressive building and not too expensive to get in (about £3) with lots of varying works of art in many forms. There are many rooms dedicated to different periods of history and many helpful explanations of the cultural background to the pieces in the room.
