“Horrors of War”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

A terrible indictment of war behaviour. An interesting slant by the present Government utilising political language to represent the soldiers of South Vietnam. A horrifying display on the cruelty & inhumaneness of man during conflict but worthwhile to see

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

A horrible past but an excellent display of Vietnams less than glamorous past. Well worth a visit. Lets hope history does not repeat it's self.

“Fascinating, gruesome, mind-boggling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Not for the faint-hearted. Ok a long way on terrible roads, but certainly an eye-opener to the atrocities of war and mans' ability to destroy other men in some of the most cruel ways possible. I hated it but it was an education

A place that we all should visit, to remind everybody shuch things should never happen again.even if the place is located in a wonderful corner of the world, when you finish the visit , the sadness remains with you for several hours.

“so sad but worth a stop by”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

i can only say that it was so sad to see this monument of the past. with the evidence of tortures and killings, not a good place for the kid but indeed a good place for history lover. I can only recommend this as a place worth to stop by for your trip to/from south tip, An Thoi. Nothing more to expect I guess
