Being one of the largest fine arts centers of Vietnam, Fine Arts Museum
is conveniently located near the Ben Thanh Market, at 97A Pho Duc Chinh Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City
The Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Museum
is housed in a former commercial building dating from the turn of the twentieth century. . As Saigon became Ho Chi Minh City and the country reunited, the building was reformed into a museum in 1987 as the result of a decision of the City’s People's Committee, though it was not officially opened until 1991.
The displays cover three floors of the large structure. The first floor displays changing exhibits of contemporary art by local and international artists. The second floor galleries display contemporary art from the museum's permanent collection. The collection features sketches, paintings and statues, many of which focus on the resistance to the various colonial rulers. Lastly, the third floor displays older works from the first century to the early twentieth century.
If you’re interested in arts, this museum is an ideal place to visit!
