1. In the old city, the area is not large; 2. There is a fixed tour route, you can not go back; 3. Visit content includes historical pictures, cultural relics, models, image materials, especially recommended to see more video materials, to better understand the truth, restore historical facts; 4. About an hour can be visited, ticket prices 30,000 shields.
I think it is worthwhile to go to the exhibition hall and correct the ticket price: 30,000 adults per person, free children, with Vietnamese, English and French interpretation and signs, can understand a lot of the history of that time, see European and American tourists, especially American tourists are most interested.
Stepping back in time to a place no one would ever want to end up. Imagine your feet shackled day in day out, no food no bathroom only the screams of your fellow men in the same pain and suffering as you. What did I do to deserve this, why have my captures done this, why why.The only thing to do is escape or face the guillotine.
Now it's a museum, a complete preservation of the former Hualu prison, which was ironically called Hilton Hanoi by American prisoners of war during the Vietnam War. The exhibits mainly show Vietnam's struggle against French independence. The exhibits have different tools of torture, including the guillotine used by French colonists to execute Vietnamese revolutionaries.
Hualu Prison was left behind to commemorate the war. Although it is totally different from the prison of that year, it still retains the layout of that year. What we can see now is the weakening part of the actual scene, but we can still see the cruel side of the war, the soul of the unjust death seems to be still crying in prison. No war, we want peace.
The admission to Hualu Prison is about $1, and the prison is converted into a museum. Originally used by the French government to retain Vietnamese political prisoners and other prisoners. In the late Vietnam War, American prisoners of war included McCain, who had a private tour guide who could provide a more detailed history.
