This is again a very sad place and can be very graphic not sure how children would cope in such a pace personally due to very explicit photographs of the terrible things that happened to people! Very informative and disturbing but perhaps I would suggest...More

We visited here as a prebooked tour alongside the killing fields. Although part of modern history this feel a very long time ago. Our guide was a local who lost family during this historic part of Cambodia. The story from the takeover of the school...More

Just for the millennium’s ! An touching and sad story that is very recent, but already forgotten. ( mostly never taught) The survivors on site was a special moving moment for me . Unbelievable!

A must visit if you are interested in knowing the history of Cambodia. The audio guide is easy to use and you can share it with a partner by bringing your own extra set of earphones.

I’d recommend the audio tour at this museum. There is a lot to look at and even more to hear about. The tour is well laid out with different areas having their own specific commentary. Some of the images may be confronting but the audio...More

This wasn’t on our wish list of things to do but having seen the killing fields it seemed a must to complete the mental picture Atrocities mustn’t be forgotten or a conveniently blind eye turned

I listened to everything on the audio tour and read everything on the walls. Captivating to say the least, disturbing describes it better. Strange how some of the remaining survivors set-up shop in the courtyard for photographs, book sales, whatever. Decided it wasn't necessary go...More

Unmissable. So moving with a very good audiotour. One of the only 12 survivors is there. Top tip: If you are pushed for time, don't bother with the National Museum and Royal Palace. They aren't worth the entrance fees, but you can spend a very...More

I found the visit to the Museum shocked me, and I have visited Auschwitz and Dachau. This happened so recently and nobody so far has really been held to account for the torture and genocide. The Museum is the Camp, in the main as it...More

You should come if you really want to know about Cambodia and its people. This place could scare you but it maybe a memorible experience in your trip. That's all I can say.

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.

We didn't get to specify a guide. It was whomever was available. If several people came into the museum at the same time they were taken together as a group. My wife and I were the only visitors with our guide. There is... More
