I really like the atmosphere here. Everything is just so artistic, quite and peaceful. I, myself, actually spent 4 hours here just wandering around, seeing endless pieces of art. The facilities were also a good experience to me because the W.C was quite good, which is better than many Vietnamese constructions. I highly recommend you guys come here, enjoy the art and learn more about Vietnamese people and history.
You know what, this museum is very good. Some of the work in the main building is not up to par and perhaps chosen for its political influence, but a lot of it stands out as excellent. Different forms of art, within each style, some very good and some excellent. The small alternate building to the left of the main houses a superb collection of weaves and early Viet and other drawings. The whole place was very special. I hope they bring more recent art and start removing some not so good war period work, but time will work that out.
It was a very pleasant afternoon learning about the different styles and periods of Vietnamese art. Their art was influence by the rulers and art periods of the times. The contemporary show was impressive. Reading the information on the plaques helps one with the changes in time periods and influences. Just a quick read, but it makes a big difference. There is a coffee shop for your friends who finish faster than you.
Great collection of lacquer works and silk paintings. Not so many pieces older than 2 centuries. It would be valuable to have more written comments accompanying the pieces on display.
Three floors of beautiful Vietnamese art in a spacious building. Not crowded at all which is perfect for peacefully enjoying the art and sculptures. Would have appreciated more information or an English directory of some sort. Entrance fee was 40k per person.
Numerous works, mostly paintings, in chronological order. Minimal English captions fail to ascribe European inffluences but are strong on recent ideological depictions of struggle. The rooms in the French colonial buidlings are air- conditioned.
Quiet museum with a range of Vietnamese art from the 10th century to present. The collection of 19th and 20th century lacquer paintings covers multiple galleries, showing the evolution of technique, material, and subjects. If you're used to just European, Japanese or Chinese art, these paintings will be a revelation.
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.
Many beautiful sculptures, paintings and drawing and etchings! Particularly enjoyed the laquer and silk paintings. Give quite a bit of time to see everything.
