Culture is expressed by the fine arts but everything to me is culture. Hanoi is rich in culture. Looking at the list of major libraries in Hanoi I count 33.
Museums are too many to count. The museum of Ethnology is probably the best. All of the museums are first class in my opinion. They have a museum for everything including a museum for women.
Many of these particular venues I have already written about. So, for this blog entry I just walked around the block and tried to give you the flavor of Hanoi.
There must be hundreds of tube art gallarys in Hanoi. They are everywhere. If you don’t like what you see most will paint what you want.
There are a lot of book stores which are very popular with the Vietnamese and foreigners.
What you see here is a very small sampling of what is available just a short walk from my hotel.
The Hanoi's Museum of Fine Arts is a few more blocks away but worth seeing. It has a great representation of Vietnam's art. It is just across the street from the Temple of Literature. The first Library of Vietnam.
