Revolutionary Museum information
Lonely Planet review
Located in the former French comandant's residence, this museum has exhibits on Vietnamese resistance against the French, communist opposition to the Republic of Vietnam, and the treatment of political prisoners. You'll also find a painting of Vo Thi Sau (facing death with her head held high), a diorama of the Con Daos and some stuffed wildlife: boas, lizards and monkeys.
An impressive-looking new Con Dao Museum building (located at the eastern end of Ð Nguyen Hue) has been constructed. Exhibits from the Revolutionary Museum will be moved here once it opens its doors.
