The Art Museum is the place where activities like fine arts exhibitions usually take place and where paintings and sculpture works during different times of the country are displayed.
The museum is located at 97 Pho Duc Chinh Street, District 1 and was built from September 1987. This edifice is attached to the legend as well as the wealthiest Chinese businessman in Sai Gon (Ho Chi Minh today) in the first half of the 20th century. That man was called Uncle Hoa, the owner of Hui Bon Hoa Corporation. This edifice was designed by the French architect, following the style of Baroque which is much preferred at that time and the construction was completed in 1925.
