Words can't really explain my emotions about this place. Don't get me wrong. It's must thing to see when on island. Just coping with brutality that human can do to another human is hard. I'm so sorry for what use to happen here.

Thought it would be so much more. What the prisoners went through was really horrible but they have not put much effort to the "museum". Too bad.

I thought that the Phu Quoc prison was a good place to learn more about the islands and Vietnams history. Some of the figurines were unfortunately broken.

Here, as in all the places where you are made c wars it is the prison where they were detained enemies, even though they were the Vietnamese (local population). Not very big but it is enough to understand how these people were treated, tortured, and killed. There is also a ststa evasion, by a tunnel dug with their hands and... More

Was a great experience to learn more about the history of Vietnam, specifically the Vietnam war. Offers a lot of information in both English and Vietnamese.

This experience could alter your perspective on American treatment of prisoners. The torture methods displayed here and performed by the American puppet government is horrific to behold, and to think a lot of these things are still going on today in Guantanamo... Horrible and eye-opening. The Vietnam war has a history here on Phu Quoc, and it is also why... More

Prison depicts the ways the south Vietnamese and the Americans treated revolutionary prisoners during the Vietnam war. Lots of displays, although many of the solider mannequins are missing limbs or falling over. It is a free museum, they accept donations but obviously not a lot of money spent on it. Could use some updating. Description are in both Vietnamese and... More

We visited in a hot day and all the huts are corrugated so very hot, take an umbrella and plenty of water. It was very anti American and could not get into the museum as it was closed.

It displays the old cruel time so I don't recommend it for kid. It's only suitable for those who wants to study history and increase knowledge of old prison. I myself don't like and enjoy such kind of place.

Take plenty of handkerchiefs. It's difficult to take this all in. The varying degrees of torture is shocking and cruel. I often wonder how humans can be so ruthless. This site doesn't adequately explain the why but clearly displays the various ways pain and suffering can be maximized. Of course there is historical value in visiting such a sadistic place....
