Built between 1925 and 1932, this architecturally impressive museum was formerly home to the École Française d’Extrême Orient. Its architect, Ernest Hebrard, was among the first in Vietnam to incorporate a blend of Chinese and French design elements. Exhibit highlights include bronzes from the Dong Son culture (3rd century BC to 3rd century AD), Hindu statuary from the Khmer and Champa kingdoms, jewellery from imperial Vietnam, and displays relating to the French occupation and the Communist Party.

Destination Asia

Today, it is a museum showcasing Vietnam's history with very large displays covering every period. It is housed in a colonial French building which was completed in 1932.

There are two buildings. The one about history since prehistoric times is OK. The one with propaganda is annoying and lacks context
