This place is a very interesting museum like area. Be prepared tho its quite extreme to see the killing fields. I would advise everyone to take the audio your and not take a tour guide. The audio tour is incredibly accurate and amazing how the story of the killing fields is told

This is a must see for anyone visiting Cambodia--a real horrific part of history that many people are unfamiliar with. It is well presented with lots of relics from that era. It is necessary to visit this site in conjunction with the Toul Slang museum.

This was such a sobering but needed experience. We are fortunate the Cambodian people invite outsiders to visit this place. The audio guide is a must. Wear good shoes, modest attire and be prepared to be humbled.

This is just a MUST do if you want to understand the culture and recent history of Cambodia. The "killing fields' seem so peacefull, but underneath this layer you experience horror stories of the 1970's. Positives: - reasonable price - free audio guide in many languages: Dutch, German, etc. - the audio guides are of excellent quality - helpfull staff... More

I'm giving a 5, not on delight, but on the appreciation and to give honor for the place. This was one of those few places on earth where you will be changed the moment you enter and leave from it. Very simple: you have to be here if you will be in Cambodia. The place offers umbrella even during our... More

Out of respect, I took no photos. The audio guide is superb, and paints a chilling picture of this time in Cambodian modern history

Sadly a must do whilst in Phnom Penh. Visited straight after S21 so a lot of horror to witness in one day. Incredibly sad & moving place to visit. You are self guided with earphones & can go at your own pace

You just can't come to Phnom Penh and not go. The people of Cambodia want to tell their stories. Audio tour enables you to silently reflect on exactly what happened here.

If you have limited time and had to choose between this and Tuol sleng, I would recommend Tuol Sleng. Both are great to visit.We hired to tuk tuk from the Royal Palace area to visit both places. The return trip costed $10.
