Fine Arts Museum - Review
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.

Fine Arts Museum, Hanoi Reviews
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.
40,000 VND entry fee. Extensive museum with art from hundreds of years ago to the early 21st century. I could have easily spent 2-3 hours wandering through all of the museum's exhibits. There is air conditioning but it can be a bit humid inside.
The art was really cool, and the museum is a nice medium size. Something you can get through in an hour. Only critique, is that they should do a better job with descriptions of what's being shown - along with presentation of the art. The bland boring space doesn't do the art any favors, especially for the epic Buddhist statues!
Beautiful museum, lots of art pieces spanning hundreds of years. Nicely organized by era and culture/style. First statues and sculptures from earlier art, followed paintings, including some really good laquer paintings.
