I came here with friends as we toured round the island in taxi for the day. In the museum building there are some displays, some of which had English translations. For me the most interesting part was the main prison site and structures, where there are lots of prison scenes recreated. As mentioned, this is not for the faint-hearted and I would be wary of letting young children see some of these scenes. In the West, and especially in the UK, there is little-to-no teaching of the Vietnam/American War (as it's known in Vietnam), and here at the prison, they haven't pulled any punches with the prison scenes and description signs, which are in Vietnamese and English across the main site. If you like to read and see everything in a museum, I'd recommend you allow 60-90 minutes for your visit here. I found it to be extremely informative, emotive and necessary, and highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in history, when visiting Phu Quoc. I thought everything at the museum was in very good condition given the cheap entry cost. There are some tourist shops on the way out, and also a block of toilets outside (bring paper!)

Phu Quoc Prison Phu Quoc Island Coconut Prison, South Phu Quoc 752214168 [...] Did I LIKE it? Definitely nothing for the feeble minded After 15 minutes I was in tears, hopelessly. I can't even go on in German. Being a German national, age 67, I've been told much of what THEY did, to six million Jews and everything. BUT... ah - no comparisons, no way. Can not. What drove me to tears was what state of mind those US soldiers must have been in ... to inflict these various exquisitely elaborate ways of T O R T U R E ... most of them documented there, to those 40.000 "communist terrorists" (GOOKS) they must have REALLY HATED much more severely than anything I can imagine. So, my fellow tourists, see how long you take before you stop taking photos, on your tour of Coconut Prison. But do have a look. It's an experience, no matter what you always knew, or didn't. P.S.: Surely not advisable for kids under 16.

Visited this prison as part of a TUI tour, glad we went but leaves you a bit traumatised seeing the horrific torture that occurred here. Dummy’s around the site show torture scene reconstruction and tunnelling of prisoners where they tried to escape. Didn’t have the heart to photograph any of prison. Good information centre with pictures and eyewitness accounts. Not for children. We were there about midday and it was unbearabley hot in sheds, maybe an idea to go early in day when not so hot.

CLOSED AS AT 19 MARCH!!!! it has been closed for at least a week and each time I go past I see tourists on motorcycles with frustration on their faces, so thought I would save you the long ride down there.
