About this Place Of Interest

Welcome to Hoa Lo Prison, ironically dubbed the ‘Hanoi Hilton’ by American prisoners of war. Built by the French in 1896, it was originally only intended to incarcerate around 450 prisoners. However, by the 1930s, the number of inmates swelled to almost 2,000, with the majority of them being political prisoners. Even after the departure of the French, Hoa Lo Prison continued to remain in use, particularly during the Vietnam War when it housed American prisoners. Today, only a small section of the original prison remains to commemorate the resilience of freedom fighters as well as to educate the public about the harsh consequences and depravities of war.

Discover how food and blood circulations are just as likely to kill you as bullets, and learn how to potentially survive in such harsh conditions. This Learning Experience is suitable for students Secondary 2 and above, who have learnt about the blood circulatory system.
