Mostly a display of ways of torture, which are illustrated with puppets. Both impressive and disturbing. It's free. Worth a short visit.

Although some of the signs along this museum-like prison were with some questionable English and hard to read, there ARE signs on English and that was very valuable. The dolls which represents the tortured prisoners of the former prison, are actually quite well done. They...More

Good to see, but so incredibly awful to realise that people could have been treated this way, not too many years ago. A real eye opener

Important part of the history. Very disturbing and unpleasant. But good to see and learn. Person who invented torture mechanisms is still alive and lives on the Phu Quoc island.

Not much here, but it was a good way to spend 20mins or so! And very cheap. (We actually didn’t pay anything - not sure if you should!)

We stopped off on an arranged TUI trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us an excellent insight.

Hi Christian! Fingernails island was nice, but the beach area very small and also small area for snorkeling. Gam Ghi Island is much better for snorkeling. Did not visit Pagada, but coconut prison you can visit on your own... More

I think it’s open every day without exception. No fees. You can wander around by yourself when and where you want.

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