The prison is extremely hard to visit and hear the stories of what went on under Pol Pot. It is very confronting, emotional and hard to actually digest that this went on for 4 years without the UN stepping in. I think that it is fantastic that tourists are allowed to visit here and hear first hand of the tragic... More

Extremely confronting but needed to be seen. This museum is a must see even though it is a sad time for Cambodia and its people.

Take your time, take some water and get the audio tour. This was another very powerful experience. Little needs to be said but it is a must do while in Cambodia.

A must see site in Phnom Penh, the museum is a chilling tale of the hideous crimes of countries past. Headphones tour provides as much or little information as you can stomach about the events in S21. A well presented and maintained exhibition.

A part of the world's story that everyone should be aware of. I visited this on my last day in Phnom Penh and the stories and images stayed with me as I travelled around the rest of the country. The audio tour sensitively presented the facts; there were warnings when the details became too graphic and these parts could be... More

I have no idea about Khmer Rouge before and this tour has made me realize how suffered the people are in this era. This is really a good historical place to learn everything you wanna know about Cambodia.

It's hard to face, to believe the horror of the Khmer Rouge years, but it's real and we must remember and make sure it doesn't happen again in our time. Bear witness

This a place that makes one wonder how cruel as a race us humans can be. This was place where so many innocent suffered and died while those in power had no respect or compassion for their fellow countrymen and women. Such manipulation of the minds.

When I first arrive this place, i can feel the energy of something misery. It's really depressing to see these place how people has been tortured and some of them died there.
