Condao Museum

From 1862 to 1975, Con Son Island was a brutal prison used first by the French colonial, then the American backed government. This museum has more than 2000 exhibits, including many rare documents, dioramas and excellent photographs, which comprehensively record the island’s history, including the French colonial era and the ‘prison period’. It should be your first stop before exploring the island’s prisons and other historic sites.
