We felt sad coming to this place. I suggest everyone to visit this place. We should never forget about the history of this place.

We visited the prison which is now a genocide museum. The entrance fee is $6 each which includes a very informative history of the Khmer Rouge and the killings carried out at this place. It is easy to spend about three hours here so allow enough time to see all as well as pause for thought.

What can you say really. The audio guide was excellent and allowed you to go into as much/little detail as you wanted. It was a chilling place to visit but was never too gruesome or uncomfortable. Highly recommended especially for those who want to learn more about Cambodia's past.

First time visiting a genocide museum, very informative with the audio guide, felt sad after the visit, can meet up with few s21 survival selling their book along the exit.

The prison shows the terrible conditions and punishment that the prisoners constantly had to endure. The torture was shocking, but a very fascinating place to learn about it. The only to survivors from the prison also stay there during the day and sell books which showcase there experiences whilst in the prison which really adds to the visit.

This is a must see attraction if you visit Phnom Penh. The audio tour is a very well constructed narrative that exposes the truth, the brutality and the suffering. I had the privilege of meeting one of the survivors while I was there. Allow a couple of hours here to take everything in.

This is probably the most awful and horrific place I have ever been to. These poor people tortured beyond belief then sent to the killing fields. I think anyone visiting this country need to see what was done to their innocent people. The English audio was great and clearly explained what we were seeing, with suitable time to pause and...

This is a must do. While it is extremely sad and hard to see and hear the horrors that happened here, it makes understanding the country and its history real. It takes a while to go thru and listen to the audio so make sure to get there no later than 3pm in order to see it all before they... More

I have given this museum a 5-star rating not for what it represents but for the way it has been preserved in reverence to all those who suffered torture and lost their lives at the hands of Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge hoping that humanity will never again witness such atrocities and peace reigns. The museum is an old high school... More
