History Museum of Hanoi

Interesting
Both the architecture and the exhibits of the history museum make it well worth a visit. Designed by Ernest Hébrard, the building is a mix of French and Chinese architecture, crowned by a large cupola. Inside the museum, don't miss the Cham statues dating from the 7C-11C, the statues of Buddha from the late 18C, and the magnificent ceramics from the 14C-15C and 17C-18C. The watercolours depicting the court are also of interest.
