here one will experience what horror means. The museum, which is more a memorial than a museum, is impossible to describe with words. It is something to live, an experience to feel, a feeling to live. The audioguides are necessary and well done. You should...More

Wow The way they tortured the place people that were sent to this prison, which used to be school classrooms, is simply terrible, considering this only happened in the 1970's. The horrific faces on the pictures of the poor tortured prisoners in the cells was...More

If your in the area you cannot afford to miss this place and it's significance historically and now as people still living with the consequences this regime had on the Cambodian population. Take the audio tour its really worth it.

May be emotionally heavy to see what the Cambodians went through, but definitely worth the visit. An eye opening experience of this horrific event, there were 7 survivors of this tragedy, 2 of which you can talk to at the end.

Hard to justify this as "excellent" but it really is worth a visit to better understand the genocide which killed around 1 in 4 of the population at the time and put it into perspective. Definitely get the audio guide.

Given the cruel history that has taken place, it feels weird to 'rate' this museum as excellent. But I am impressed how this country organises and maintain it's local history. This museum is not just a museum but also a memorial site, an exhibition and...More

I did the hop on/hop off bus (not like in major cities) for $15 US which picks you up at your hotel and brings you back, goes to S21 and the Killing Fields. Highly recommend it.
