About Hoa Lo Prison

Built by French colonial authorities to house political prisoners, Hoa Lo Prison became known as the “Hanoi Hilton” during and after the Vietnam War as the place where North Vietnam held US prisoners. Today the prison is a museum and memorial to the Vietnamese detainees who suffered often cruel treatment at the hands of French colonial authorities. Sections also detail the treatment of US prisoners, who are portrayed in a less than sympathetic light as would-be invaders. Given its history, Hoa Lo Prison is a fascinating and educational attraction.
