Coi Nguon Museum Tours

Perhaps the most entertaining rainy day attraction on Phu Quoc, a tropical island five miles off coastal Cambodia, is the Coi Nguon Museum—the five-story building serves as a natural history and history museum with noteworthy add-ons such as a gift shop, several restaurants, a Buddha shrine and even its own vat for making Vietnam’s popular fish sauce. More than 5,000 artifacts, comprise its collections, which include fossilized wood, turtle shells, sea shells, animal bones, relics from a nearby shipwreck, displays on Vietnamese medicines and historical artifacts including Stone Age implements and 17th-19th century pottery.

There is a small section devoted to the Island’s storied history as a French colonial, and later, an American prison housing some 40,000 VC prisoners. There is also an entire floor dedicated to the lives of Phu Quoc’s present-day residents.

Practical Info

You’ll find the museum in Dung Dong Town off Tran Hung Dao street near Long Beach, the Island’s busiest and longest stretch of sand—the building’s fifth floor terrace affords noteworthy panoramas. The museum is open daily from 8 a.m. til 5 p.m. with a 20,000VND admission (approx. $1). It is recommended that you plan for at least an hour and a half to explore the museum’s offerings.
