  • Beautiful riverside building dedicated as a museum to the life and works of Vietnam's greatest artist, Le Ba Dang who died in 2015. The building makes an ideal showcase for an interesting and diverse cross-section of the artists 2 and 3 dimensional work, and includes photographs, notes and memorabilia from his life mainly in Paris, France. An audio-video documentary including many interviews with him is screened continuously in a small theatre and makes entertaining and enlightening viewing. There is a 30,000d admission fee which is excellent value. I ended up spending an hour and three-quarters here completely fascinated. Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in the arts, cultural history of Vietnam or whoever just likes looking at truly inspiring paintings and sculptures.
  • How to better understand this great too unknown artist, exiled in France before WWII, who translated with such sensitivity and artistic realism the repeated scares of Vietnam war among its population, than to spend time in this splendid French house. Artist's works sent you an emotional blast, as he is so great in his art! Unhappily, information about history and artist's context are deeply lacking, and the light in this ward isn't made for such exhibition where shadows are playing on the canvas. Not many people during my 2hours visit (unhappily but so quiet!). Just near, is the Art museum with another great, great artist, Mrs Diem Phung Thi, don't miss her, astonishing, and more!
