“Scary and educational”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Scary place, reminds me a lot of Auschwitz. Good educational signs so that you don't have to sign up for a tour. No entrance fee but a voluntary donation is accepted.

Very interesting to read the signs that are written by the winners of the war not the side that we westeners normally get the information from.

“It really makes you think.”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

It's not big and fancy, but it makes you think about the crualty of human nature. Suits all kinds of visitors, though. It is not presented too ugly.

“Not much information, no English guide”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

The place is very important for all Vietnamese, but scant historical information for tourists. I recommend to find information about the prison before visiting.

Reviewed December 8, 2012

“Disappointed.”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We expected to wander around the original prison, just to get the feel of the place and the conditions the inmates experienced, not to
be bombarded with horrendous photos of people being tortured, reinacted scenes with staged lifelike figures in a newly built prison based on the original. Not a place to take kids.
