Listen about this prison, and Vietnam war history. I went here with my niece. She was very interesting to know about the history. History is a part of present!

Experience strong but necessary ... it is a warning to all people of any deployment or political color. Poor explanations and explanatory signs even though the place speaks for itself.

Not essential viewing. If your on a local tour this is one of your options, we were asked if we wanted to see it but unfortunately we said yes. It's reasonable well presented but tells a tale that hurts to look at. Winners write history and that comes through. It's just sad, sad sad.

Heard a lot of this Prison, I had been prepared for hard feelings but things got out of hands when I saw it in person... Being Vietnamese, it broke our hearts to watch all Reappearance of Life, activities of prisoners in detention room... And all of the most inhuman torturing scenes... It was hard feeling to be here but don't... More

A real eye opener to what really happened there during the war. Quite depressing however it is something people need to recognise the truths.

It is not nice but it is a piece of history what happened during the French occupation. During the visit of some barracks, there were images of the atrocities that have been there portray. Was silent.

We were with the Mororad go and have made the Coconut Prison halt. Very impressive and with the pupen affects all very real. Admission is free and recommended. On the other side of the street an Army Monument is a quick look was good.

I really enjoyed walking around the prison and getting a true idea of the conditions and experience of prisoners there. The mannequins were brutal but it was good to see exactly what happened. Main concern was that loads of Vietnamese families brought their children there. I saw more than twenty children under ten. Obviously that has nothing to do with... More

Museum was keen to only provide information regarding the America-Vietnam war, even though the prison was originally built by the French and was also used by the Republic of Vietnam Armed Forces. Mainly showcasing very depressing depictions of the torture of the POWs under the hands of their prison guards. There was no clear marker of a route to follow... More

Tour of the prison took about a half hour. In prison, the torture was carried out revolutionaries. In some areas there is exposure to scenes of torture. If you're on the road, you can see the call. But especially, in my opinion, you should not go.
