    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 »

    Actually the Museum we have not found, but visited two sites of the former penal colony, which both have real Museum qualities by their stage director and artistic and realistic replenishment form. Emotionally quite hard, but buildings sadly rather beautiful.

    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.
