Going into Ho Chi Minh’s Fine Arts Museum felt like I was sneaking into someone’s mansion during the olden times. As it turns out, it was actually originally a mansion before it was turned into a museum. Mr. Hoa, the wealthiest man of Saigon during the 1920s, owned this yellow and white grand colonial-era mansion. It is a combination of French and Chinese styles, exuberantly filled with marble floors and stained glass all throughout its airy rooms and verandas. The mansion, I mean, the museum itself is already a work of art! Granted it’s a bit rundown but definitely not without its charm. How I wish I saw it during its prime.
