Vietnam Fine Arts Museum is located in 66 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street of Hanoi. The Museum is attracting a great number of domestic and foreign visitors thanks to not only the exhibition content but also the artistic architecture of the building.
It was an old structure, built in the 1930s by the French, reserved for the French colonial rulers’ daughters throughout the Indochina who came to Hanoi to study. In 1962, the government requested the Ministry of Culture to transform the building from the western architecture into a Vietnamese appearance with ornamental details from the traditional architecture of communal house and fit for exhibiting works of fine arts.
So only on June 26, 1966 was Vietnam Fine Arts Museum officially inaugurated with the total area of 4200 square meters which 1200 square meters for exhibition. From 1997 to 1999, the total area was increased to 4737 square meters.
In addition to the Museum in Nguyen Thai Hoc street, the second branch at Hoang Cau street of Hanoi also has an excellent atmosphere with a system of large room and sufficient equipment reserved for art work conservation store, restoration lab, conferences and meetings.
