97A Pho Duc Chinh St., D1

The Museum of Fine Arts showcases paintings of famous communist figures as well as some contemporary art made by Vietnamese artists. Although based in a stunning building and filled with Vietnamese art, it’s not easy to grasp it all without some proper insight into the artistic history of Vietnam. Unfortunately the museum itself gives little information. So either read up or arrange a good tour, like Sophie’s art tour. Also note that the museum is not air-conditioned and has no lift. On a positive note the entrance fee is one of the lowest we have ever seen. Note that it’s closed on Mondays.
