“Thought Provoking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2012

Due to the nature of the museum it's obviously a sombre and often quite harrowing learning about what went on here.

There's not a lot to actually see, but reading and learning of the atrocities requires time. I wouldn't suggest a rush trip here.

We were very glad to take the time to visit. It made us appreciate Cambodia and it's people so much more.

“Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2012

One can spend hours in the school come prison and see the cells and the torture equipment, the graphic pictures and read the reports of the few that managed to survive this hell hole. Not for the faint hearted.
And the world stood by and let this happen.

An amazing experience albeit very emotional. Our guides personal stories helped to make the experience even better.

Not to be missed!

“A little eerie but good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2012

What surprised us most was that two survivors of the prison were there selling their books on the experience. It really was quite sad and is definitely not to be missed on your trip to Phnom Penh.
