We saw the prison and the grounds - it was like a history lesson - but something I really found informative and it made me understand the history behind the country and the wars it has gone through.

Spending money on renewal of torture objects, fencing etc, but road to Prison is so bad, make sure you have comfortable vehicle to travel in.
Plenty of Propaganda material. Not a place I'd recommend.

The Coconut Tree prison is being reconstructed to reflect what it looked like in the days when it was a prison. There are extremely graphic depictions of the torture that took place there. The exhibition loses some of it's potential to educate by by seeming to be more of an exercise in propaganda with emotive terms such as "American puppet governments". True, or not, I would have liked to know more about timelines and the background to the horrific things that occurred.

At the time I visited this prison they were completely restoring the place to its former 'glory'. Lot of barbed wire and 'in your face torture' techniques.
