Marvel at the thousand-eyed, thousand-armed image of Guan Yin, a 17th-century Hindu-style stone sculpture, at Fine Arts Museum (Bao Tang My Thuat). The country's primary art museum tells a comprehensive story of the fine arts in Vietnam across three levels. Ranging from ancient antiques to modern art and folk paintings, the collection's pieces include early sandstone sculpture and an elegantly carved Buddha image dated 1057. Housed in two 1930s colonial French ministry buildings, the museum gives you insight into the range of Vietnamese art--from prehistoric times to modern patriotic epics and soul-searching abstract compositions. Guided tours are available in English.

  • 40k to enter at the door, you can download the app and scan a QR code on certain pieces for an audio guide for extra money - nice for someone who wants to learn more about the artwork. 3 floors, Wind through each floor while exploring art work of all shapes and sizes. Plenty of benches to sit and relax along the way. I took about 45 min to stroll through. 3 stars because although it was a nice museum I wouldn't say it's a must see in Vietnam.
  • Enjoyable experience, I had. Recommend I would. But the extra ticket for the art gallery app was just a lazy-person google. It was less detailed, less interesting than a wiki page. I highly advise against it.
