Review

GAM is a private museum of gems collected by Hanoi native Dung Duong. GAM’s website says it’s "the most extensive collection of rare minerals, gem sculptures and cut stones in Vietnam.”

So if gems are your thing, check out GAM.

Mr Dung’s daughter, Milan educated designer, Nga Duong, inherited her father’s love of stones. Along with her Italian husband, she’s created, a jewellery shop of her own designs and a garden bar, next to the museum.

Admission to the museum is free if you have a drink at the garden bar at the back. The bar’s open into the night.
