not the most uplifting of places to visit when on honeymoon and, in fact, our guide said many westerners won't go in. certainly harrowing and very upsetting to see how many can treat his fellow man but essential we remember and never allow hatred and intolerance to thrive

I felt I had to go here...and didn't have enough time to make it to the killing fields as well. Brilliant audio tour- well worth spending the extra 3 dollars. Truly atrocious history but needs to be visited.

Extremely interesting, but unbelievably shocking. The killing fields & this genocide museum go hand in hand. It's very responsibly priced & the audio guide is excellent. I did learn more about the Khmer Rogue at this centre, but I still fail to understand why...

A fantastic facility which evidences the atrocities perpetrated by the Khmer Rouge. We were shown around by a tour guide with personal experience of the Pol Pott regime and this only served to enhance the experience. We also met two men who survived S21 and the torture which was very humbling.

Again (after my review of the Choeung Ek), this is a rating that is "Excellent" because of how the Museum is presented and not of what it represents. As anyone who has already toured here, one realizes that they have taken artifacts and information and helped us to see what transpired, right under our noses, not so many years ago.... More

This is a monument to horror. Very interesting place where two of the rare survivors of it still can be seen. The blood stains on the floors of the cells are still there. The photographs are chilling and sad. A tragic place but an essential place to visit to understand the genocide.

A must visit along side the killing fields. It's one of them places you don't enjoy because of the horrendous things that happened here but it's a must visit. Like the killing fields get the audio tour, don't bother with a tour guide, you will get so much more with the audio tour as you can take as much time... More

This tour is very visual. For anybody that wants to see first hand the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge this is the place. There is so much to see and so many emotions will flow. Be aware. You will probably leave with a huge lump in your throat.

Impressive, heartbreaking and a memory in the soul of the Cambodian people. Entrance is only 3€ and 3€ extra for a audio tour. The audio tour is a must need, and they are available in every language. It takes about 2 hours and impressive till the last minute. Al aspects will be showen and told.

The prison is a former school turned into genocide prison, and many were transported from here to the killing fields. There is not much to see other than several buildings transformed into jail cells, and pictures, but the place is still worthwhile to visit. I was underwhelemed by my guides little explanations, and should have used the audioguide, which I... More
