The entrance facadeDesigned by a French architect, this museum is usually defined as "Neo-Vietnamese" in style—a combination of Vietnamese palace and French villa. The golden color (often with dark green shutters) is common in French colonial buildings in Vietnam. The porte cochere seems to be a more recent addition.
