Recreation of prison conditions during the Vietnam War. Hard hitting. Lots of tour groups, which detracts from the solemnity of the experience. Worth the visit though.

If you haven't visited any of the other Vietnamese war / history museums, it is good to go. We visited Hanoi Hilton and the war museum in hcmc last year and both were WAY better. The signs aren't that good.

We have the wretched picture of Vietnam war here. A good place to come. The visiting area is large which splits into inside and outside parts. But there are a few interaction for visitors so you may get bored.

Walking through the prison, i felt a bit bored as it is large but a bit same model on the past war in vision. Not very attractive to the children

Very nice depictions of the terror and suffering of the Vietnamese POW's. Quite detailed visual, and the escape tunnel leading out of the camp is brilliant (spoiler). The signs in english are very fancy, but not very good. There is no descriptions of the war...More

When we were in Phu Quoc island we visited Phu Quoc prison and it was a really good educational day out. We spent several hours here. Not a place for kids. Of course, the VC were "heroic". As a regular and long time visitor to...More

It might be better to use a wheelchair because the prison is quite big and there are stairs that lead into each cabin.
