Examine a vast collection of Vietnamese art along with Cham, Khmer, and Indian objects at Fine Arts Museum. Set inside a French colonial villa, the three-story museum features historical relics created between the 7th and 17th centuries, as well as contemporary works of art designed by prominent foreign artists and Vietnam's ethnic groups. Inspect silk, lacquer, and woodcut paintings made in Hàng Trống, Kim Hoàng, and Đông Hồ styles. Observe the paintings, sketches, and statues that focus on the nation's fight for independence and resistance against colonial rulers. The museum lacks proper maintenance, so expect insufficient lighting and air-conditioning.

Fine Arts Museum Reviews
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. more »
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. more »
Museum provided an interesting look into what they would consider "fine art". Entered on a very warm and humid day anticipating a "fine art museum" that protected their artwork (and visitors) with air conditioning. It's an open air museum and to be honest the architecture of this magnificent building was much more interesting than the art work. I think it's worth your time, just don't expect a respite from the heat!
Sadness.....I just can feel it while I watched all art works. Anyway, finally spot will give you happiness is around you. You will see when you do not miss 1st floor middle of buildings. There are several galleries and children's place to draw~
