Not a “pleasant “ experience, but well worth it all the same. Learn about what happened, and see the awful evidence.

To be honest I had very little knowledge of what went on in Cambodia during that time so this was very educational, but also gut wrenching. What those poor people were put through was horrific. If you are in Phnom Penn and would like to...More

Giving this review an excellent isn't the same as rating a hotel or cafe. The Museum is a place of incredible sadness and inhumanity to others, so as a place to reflect and learn from then excellent is justified and hopefully a lesson learnt from...More

I don’t recommend going with a tour because it limits your time and experience spent in S21. From around town just take a taxi, Grab, Pass App or tuk tuk here. Don’t skim and save on and audio guide because with one you understand more...More

Spent abit more than 2 hours there. The hellish torment that they had been through was unimaginable. Glad to have met one of the survivors in person too.

Got here at around half 9 in the morning and began my solo tour with the aid of an audio guide. Had to leave at around 11, having not effectively covered even half the museum. Therefore, plan on spending at least an entire morning/afternoon here....More

Also known as the S21 prison. This place was a school turned into a prison during the dark days of the Khmer Rouge era is a place one must visit in PP. Expect to have a shivers down your spine.

To see how they turned a school into a place of torture and killing was a little numbing. Makeshift cells hastily put up to house their ‘guests’ in between torture sessions. There are lots of photos and personal stories all around. To hear of the...More

Unfortunately no photo taking is allowed inside the cells. Basically this place was originally a schools turned into a prison where torturing began before they are murdered.

This prison is extremely grim and very very dark and graphic with 100s of pictures of those who were tortured. It is present very well and is very cheap. We met a local survivor. An incredible experience I will not forget I would recommend

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.
