Con Dao Museum information

Lonely Planet review

The large, well-presented Can Tho Museum brings local history to life with manikins and life-size reproductions of buildings, including a Chinese pagoda and the interior of a house. Displays (with ample English translations) focus on the Khmer and Chinese communities, plant and fish specimens, rice production and, inevitably, the war, with the usual gruesome photos and an actual skeleton.
