It was horrific to see what countrymen did to each other in the name of a dogma. Well done to Cambodia for facing the truth of that terrible period and let the world learn from that. Highly recommended.

I have never visited other sites commemorating man's inhumanity to man before, but feel it imperative to recommend a visit to this museum. Take the audio tour. A visit to the Choeung Ek Genocidal Center should follow this giving a chronology to the barely comprehensible...More

We were stunned, shocked and saddened by what we saw but the tour put a very human reality to the atrocities that happened just a short 38 years ago. RIP to all those who suffered at the hands of these animals.

We spent over two hours at Tuol Sleng otherwise known as S21. You could spend all day here as there is plenty to take in but for me two hours is all I could do. Firstly I must say that if you are in Phnom...More

Painful to walk around the proximity of the centre, but a great experience. In particular, I was struck by a booth that mentioned that only 6% of visitors to the museum are Cambodian students-- the rest are mostly tourists. If anyone sees my review 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.

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
