All reviews vietnamese art modern art three buildings art pieces nice collection old french colonial building works of art worth a visit there is no air conditioning beautiful building stained glass entrance fee for sale on display take your time ben thanh market american war
This wonderful unique French-Indochina Art Deco colonial building is worth pay a visit. It was built around 1930s for a wealthy Chinese family Hua. Those details and the spatial arrangements make it a masterpiece of the last century.
We went here after visiting the cu chi tunnels. Arrived just after 4 and they advised that it closed at 5 (not 6pm as on google). For $2 I figured it was still worthwhile. Unfortunately at 4.45 they told us it was time to get...More
The art collections are set in a beautiful 1930's building. There are many styles of art here, one of my favourite was the art studio workshops on the ground floor where you can buy pieces. At 30k VND it's very cheap too. I highly recommend...More
Sad to say when we went it was closed during hours when it should have been open. The outside was very nice and would have loved to see the interior. It looked like it had been closed for some time and was very dirty inside...More
Late flight gave us a chance to go here. The building itself is worth seeing as is art in main building. The lacquer paintings are especially attractive. The other 2 buildings less interesting, though in one when we were there was an exhibition of photos...More
Stunning building, but poorly maintained. Other reviews have mentioned the lack of English information, but there is hardly more in Vietnamese. Some lovely installations and quality souvenirs in the gift shop. Behind the 3 museum buildings there are several galleries with pieces for sale; great...More
Three galleries in three buildings nicely done in an old mansion. No elevators so you will be walking up to three stories using stairs. And no air conditioning, so can be pretty warm. Also, they closed the coffee shop so you will need to go...More
I found it relaxing to stop here, after walking trough the city. It was peacefull and the air was not too hot inside. There was some interesting art work reflecting the countrys history. The museum seemed not so well kept, which is a shame.
Nice architectural but it's is such a shame the building is not well care nor mantain apart from the repaint of exterior. Art work not well conserve, some obvious damage by the weather and temperature.
Cheap entrance fee though, but overall a disappoining experience
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...More

I think John P is correct: I remember that the museum closes for one hour around lunch time. In case you are there at that time, there are pleasant restaurants close by, from the simple but tasty food stalls inside Ben Thanh... More
I think John P is correct: I remember that the museum closes for one hour around lunch time. In case you are there at that time, there are pleasant restaurants close by, from the simple but tasty food stalls inside Ben Thanh Market to fancier options such as Ho Chi Minh City Restaurant (and many others).
