Ex high school building converted to torture centre during year zero under Pol Pot regime. The place is full of pictures of the the victims 'processed' through this centre before being killed in the Choeung Ek. You should be mentally prepared to visit this centre....More

I learned so much about one of the most horrific (if not the most horrific) periods of Cambodia's past by visiting Tuol Sleng. While referred to as a Museum, it is the original school which you walk around, accompanied by a very informative audio guide...More

Toul Sleng was one of over 150 prisons that the Khmer Rouge established for its political opponents. Tuol Sleng or S-21 is probably the best know for its notoriety. A former school, its 4 blocks were converted into a prison, and its playground and open...More

It is a big location and you need more than 2 hours to do the audio tour properly. My son said that it is a very good history lessons for him but kind of scary. Prepare for explanations.

City centre museum which provides an insightful tour of the atrocity that happened whilst respecting the victims memory. We did this and Choeung Ek which is a taxi ride out of town. You can do one without the other, but doing both gives you the...More

We spent around 2 hours here, and I'd say it's worth every minute. The museum is by no means a light-hearted place, but you will learn so much about the painful history this country has suffered. Come here and get the audio tour. It is...More

$6 gives you the story through headphones with stop and start as you please. Give yourself at least a couple of hours. Confronting but help understanding

Easy to imagine as the school it once was if you close your eyes to the horror it became during the Pol Pot regime. Worth a visit.

This is a must if you are in Cambodia, its heart wrenching to see what these people have been through and it is a really good place to educate yourself. Audio guide is $6 which is 100% worth it.

I can not add anything that has not already been said in this forum before. The peaceful setting in the middle of the city just adds to the horror. The visit might be short, the impressions will last forever.

No idea sorry. We had a guide and transport organised. My guess it would not be a lot at it is not far out of town.
Is there a dress code to visit the museum?

No dress code but it's hot and also a very sombre place, treat it like a Buddhist temple for dress I'd say

Hi. At the beginning of the audio it explains how to do it. As usual you walk around the museum and press the corresponding number on the audio guide device. There are about 32 stations, each lasting from 1-5 minutes long... More
