National Museum of Vietnamese History

Built between 1925 and 1932, the architecturally outstanding museum was formerly home to the French Should of the Far East (École française d'Extrême-Orient). Exhibit highlights include bronzes from the Dong Son culture (3rd century BC to 3rd century AD), Hindu statuary from the Khmer and Champa kingdoms, jewellery from imperial Vietnam, and displays relating to the French occupation and the Communist Party.
