This museum is well kept and very interesting but we didn't spend too much time here as it was getting us down in spirit - not the sort of activity we really wanted to spend hours on during our 30th anniversary holiday celebration. It would be a must visit for history buffs.

Shows POW camp conditions during Vietnam USA war and delivers a selected message as to the purpose and use. Not worth driving to south island for.

Bring hurt with the history. War was past already. However a lot of heart attack feeling if you have been listening the story. War was finished. I hope that no war any more. Human can live in peace. Heal the world.

Spent an hour or so here on a very hot day. Was free to enter but donations are welcome. Interesting to see how badly the prisoners were treated and quite sad to read about the torture etc. Worth a visit.

I found it really interesting that this prison presents from a different perspective to that I am used to. It is truly horrific to see what people can do to one another, and sad to realise history is still repeating itself. Well worth a visit.

Interesting museum that exhibits the actual out door prison with lifelike dolls. We passed through the museum on a motorbike tour towards the south tip of the island. Keeping in mind that museums are likely under government control the museum offers a walk through of what it was like as a prisoner. Without previous understanding of the war it will... More

The prison is definitely worth a visit, however could do with some freshening up. A lot of the rooms were empty and the mannequins broken. Can't complain when it is free though!
