History of the fine arts museum Hanoi

The building of the museum is dated back in French domination time. It is originally a dormitory of a business organization under the Catholic Church, named “Janne d'Art Family”, served as the accommodation for daughters of French officials throughout Indochina schooling in Hanoi.

After 1945, the building was used for many different purposes. It was not until 1962 that Vietnamese government decided to hand over the building to the Ministry of Culture to remodel the place to become a collection, storage and exhibition place of Vietnamese typical, valuable art works from prehistory to the present day.

The building at 66 Nguyen Thai Hoc officially became Vietnam museum of fine arts on June 26th, 1996.
