“Interesting visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

I guess you can't complain when something is free! It was worth a visit. Some interesting reading, although sometimes hard to follow. I agree it's worth a visit as part of a tour. Check the opening times - we got locked in! ;)

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Well worth a visit for say 60 mins...interesting museum inside and original (?) prison barracks outside. well laid out with just enough written material in English to make it comprehensible...the strong pro-VC ideological slant you read in the narrative is as interesting as what you see on display

“A bad copy, for the vietnamees people”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

This is a recent build touristic prison. No pictures/stories of prisoners etc. Instead a propaganda story for the Vietnamese people. I'm only interested in real facts/pics/movies/stories. This is a no go if you want to see how it used to be. And they had pretty good camera;s that time.

“Just a stop over on an Island tour.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Kind of creepy. But I suppose it has to be. It is ok if you go as part of an Island tour, but do not make a special trip for this one.

“Not bad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

If you are nearby, pop into this free museum for a 10minute stroll around. Its interesting, but if you have a chance to visit the hanoi prison also, compare and contrast and then make you own decisions.
