Fine Arts Museum
Worth a browse - for the building and the art
What we say:
This museum is comprised of three floors in an old colonial setting in the centre of Ho Chi Minh City.
The courtyard contains an ancient looking tennis court, upon which an image of French aristocrats dressed in white playing a leisurely game is hard to dismiss.
The marble floors throughout and the spacious, airy rooms add to the colonial feel. Most of the artwork is on the second and third floors — floor two shows war-related artwork, while on the third floor two separate displays entitled 'Contemporary' and 'Antique' are in the numerous rooms.
Some interesting wood and marble sculptures can be seen here. English labelling on some pieces is well written and informative.
