Maison des Arts

Under the direction of Madame Nguyen Nga, Maison des Arts is a boutique–café–gallery with a mission to bridge old and new.
31A Van Mieu, Hanoi, Vietnam

The Overview

Wedged between two of Hanoi's most traditional cultural experiences—the 1,000-year-old Temple of Literature and the Museum of Fine Arts—the Maison des Arts makes it its mission to bridge old and new. The five-story space organizes events ranging from traditional calligraphy workshops to cutting-edge exhibits by international artists, all under the direction of Madame Nguyen Nga, who lived in Paris for 35 years before returning to Hanoi in 2007 to open the boutique–café–gallery. The first floor hosts a boutique filled with paintings, photos, prints and sculpture, while the rooftop café-terrace is ideal for a contemplative drink. In the traditionally styled, top-floor teahouse, performances of Vietnam's ancient musical forms take place twice a month.
