Make Up Your Own Mind About the Hanoi Hilton
Hoa Lo Prison, better known to Westerners as the Hanoi Hilton, is definitely a polarizing and confusing place. All the signage and displays point to the prison having been a haven for American prisoners of war, so take that in your stride when you visit. Just make sure you read both sides of the story. This place goes to show that just because a museum says one thing, doesn’t mean it’s true.
