Posted By : admin/ 194 0

Housed in a fine old colonial building, the Bao Tang My Thuat or Fine Arts Museum boasts a varied and interesting selection of Vietnam’s artifacts, architecture, paintings, sculpture, and many other works of art. The exhibits are displayed chronologically, starting with a fine collection of Stone and Bronze Age relics on the first floor. Several wood, stone, and lacquer sculptures feature as well, illustrating the versatile nature of Vietnamese art. One of the highlights here is an extraordinary Bodhisattva or Enlightened Being that supposedly has 1,000 eyes and arms.

The exhibition rooms on the second floor contain some of the country’s best lacquer paintings, and the third floor hosts many watercolor and oil works by Vietnamese artists. Other exhibits include carvings from the Central Highlands, wood-block paintings from the Dong Ho culture, and ethnic clothing. Replicas of antique pieces are for sale in the museum shop.
