Come to this art museum if only for the gorgeous colonial-style building where the ancient and modern art is housed. There are many parts to this museum, and don't miss the building at the end which has ancient sculpture. There was a special exhibition going on when I visited but it was rather small and no signage or information in English about the artist or artists. The main hall has a few floors of mainly modern art following the war in the 1970s and a few significant Vietnamese artists from the 20th century are showcased here. Spend an hour or so exploring the different rooms and hallways filled with mainly oil and lacquer paintings.
Ho Chi Minh Fine Arts Museum is situated in one of the most beautiful buildings in Saigon. The architecture of it is awesome, it was built during a colonial times and has some strong French influence in the design. The art collection inside is nice as well, we enjoyed watching it.
The bright yellow building was built during the French colonial period, and the style blends the characteristics of Vietnam and France. Entrance fees are required, which is about 30,000 dong per person. Note that Monday is closed and closed! The two of us don't have that artistic accomplishment. Our purpose for this trip is very clear, that is, to take pictures with the concave shape, the combination of stairs and windows simply cannot be better. Another big advantage here is that there are very few tourists compared to other famous attractions, which greatly increases the convenience of the concave shape. So the empty feeling in all the photos I saw afterwards is real. It's not that the crowded people like Da Lat Railway Station just shot the empty feeling. The biggest problem with the art gallery is that it doesn't have air conditioning. Perhaps this is the reason, and it affects me to study art works quietly, ahem. Glass window grilles, quite like them. It reminds me of the various cathedrals I visited in Europe three years ago, and I am seriously admiring each of them. There are so many shutters, doors and windows in the art gallery, and friends who are better than my photography skills can go to dent the shape and shoot blockbusters. This is one of the rare works in the entire art gallery with bright colors and understandable content. Most of the works in the museum have a heavy atmosphere. There is a small open space in the circular building. When we went there was no one, which shows that there are really few tourists in the art gallery. After walking around and looking at the flowers, just about to leave, I found that there was another building next to the original bright yellow house, which was also within the scope of the art gallery. Compared to the previous one, the windows here are more concave. However, there are even fewer tourists here. It is estimated that some people do not know that this building can also enter here with a beautiful spiral staircase. Indeed, the works in this pavilion seem to be related to the Vietnam War? Anyway, it was quite depressing and not good-looking... Then I went to the top floor alone to take a look. The things on the top floor were... strange... special... I won't disclose it here. If you are interested, go up by yourself.
