Another fascinating museum, looking into the ramifications of captivity during the Vietnamese wars. Hao Lo was built and primarily used by the French during the war, imprisoning Vietnamese soldiers. The prison documents the lives of many of those in captivity and the lives they led. It showcases stories of courage and strength between those in captivity and the togetherness which led to the success of escape and the eventual victory in the war. The prison primary documents its use by the French, after their rule and the eventual prison for American soldiers and the famed 'Hanoi Hilton' it touches lightly on this era of the prison. Only 20% of the prison group d's remain but it's enough to give you a genuine look and insight into the lives of how many were shaped in this prison. Fascinating, well documented and supported with real life accounts, a must visit for those interested in the Vietnamese wars.
