Housed in a delightful colonial building, the Fine Arts Museum covers three floors and displays artwork spanning the course of Vietnamese history, though it is presented in reverse chronological order. This means that the first floor contains revolving exhibitions of modern art, the second floor focuses on revolutionary art of the 20th century, and the top floor displays artifacts from the Oc Eo and Cham cultures. It's a must-see for art lovers, though other visitors may be more impressed by the building, with its shuttered windows and wrought-iron balconies, than its contents.
