You must visit and know this beautiful countries very sad past in honor of those that perished for no reason at all.

This place is a grim reminder of the genocidal rule of Pol Pot in the late 1970s. All dissidents of the Mao style revolution which returned Kampuchea to a peasant farming community were brutally tortured, and ultimately killed, in a mass purge. Hardly a family...More

I had a guided tour and having all the stories helped understand the horrific events that took place here. Utterly unbelievable that any human beings could do such things to one another. Sobering but you need to go to understand what happened and not forget...More

This hell on earth portrays man's inhumanity to man in vivid, horrific, visual detail such as no other site that I personally, have seen. The systematic torture of Cambodians by Cambodians under Pol Pot's misguided ideology is appalling. People were selected on the basis of...More

Some parts of the museum can be extremely confronting and shocking for most visitors. There’s one part of the museum where they show pictures of the victims and what happened to them, which I found very confronting and I actually had to step out of...More

This school converted by Pol Pot to a "prison" in reality a place of torture and death. Well worth a visit to see the photos of numerous victims who were kept in inhumane "cells" roughly constructed from prior classrooms. A sobering experience where some of...More

we visited as part of our tour in Phnom Penh; unsurprisingly quite a depressing place with the recent use as a prison but definitely should be seen. we met three of the survivors at the end

Hard contrast between the previous use of the building which was a school and the interrogation/detention location it became. Well laid out and an important archive of the victims during the Khmer Rouge time period.

Together with the killing fields the Tuol Sleng genocide museum is almost too much of depressing history, but worthwhile visiting. Audio guide or personal guide are strongly recommended!

Hi there. Download “pass App” it will call you quick and very cheap tuk-tuk. The audio guide at killing fields is included in the $5 entry and no guide is needed. The S21 prison is quite upsetting enough without either a... More

Hi, I think you can get a guide but the audio guide is very good and offers flexibility when to listen and to what part.
