A must see to understand some of the history of Vietnam. The Prison was built by the french and used by the Vietnamese to house the pilots shot down over Hanoi. Very interesting.

Free access and very worth the time to walk around and view the exhibits and read the display material. Dedicated to the men and women of the police force.

Keep a healthy dose of skepticism when inside - but it's a nice tribute to the men and women who work as police in Vietnam.

We enjoyed this, some of the photos were repeats of what we had seen at other museums but with more explanation and context which was helpful. There is a lot about the war but also a small section on what the police do today. The...More
