  • Island features are also historical attractions, although boring, but after all, here once was the island's history. Here is a free tour and the biggest prison. The remaining three small prisons have a package of 20000 Vietnamese dong. The prison is basically the same, with some dolls to render the atmosphere. It's best not to bring a child, because some people are scary and scary.

  • The three prisons on the island are interesting, but they don't bring anything new to what we already have with the bagnes. Their State of conservation is good, and the story is interesting.

  • Museum is free to enter. Provides an interesting insight into the uses of the island and the future of Con Dao. Definitely worth a stop while on Con Dao.  more »

  • The displays were very well presented. Well kept, and spotless, some museums can look tired and uncared for but not there. It is a museum dedicated to the islands dark prison history and those who suffered in that period. Defiantly worth a visit.
  • Historic place - Should come there when to be Condao to more understand how Vietnamese people try keeping alive for their freedom.
  • This is truly a hell on earth during the war.
  • Good place to know all about history of Con Dao
  • Con Dao Museum also call with real name is Con Dao prison
