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.
