This is a historical site of huge historical significance. The Khmer Rouge renamed this school in central Phnom Penh S21, a place where Cambodians were tortured and degraded in ways that are inappropriate to describe on Trip Advisor, or anywhere else, for that matter. It is now the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum. It costs $6 to enter, and it is... More

The energy of this historical site will leave you with a somber feeling. Explore the grounds with an audio tour and learn about the atrocities that took place at S-21.

Along with the Killing Fields, this was a very stark insight into the awful history of Cambodia. The guide is well done, and its very candid about the human suffering that took place there. Lots of walking required but thoughtfully there are lots of benches. They are also aware that some people may find the pictures too much and give... More

A must in this city. You actually only have to visit this, not the killing fields, as you will see a lot that is repeated. But of course if you have time, do both. Spend like 2-3 hours here. Take the audio, would say it's both worth it if you don't have the audio. It's only $3, so total $6... More

Definitely worth visiting. Some may find it emotionally confronting but worth persevering because it is factual and educational.

It's a struggle to place into words the emotions and experience I personally felt. We entered grounds with the English interpretation headsets which was informative. A lot of insensitive 'white' tourists were taking photos when many signs state not to. A lot of graphic imagery and equipment used for torture on display. There is an elderly gentleman sitting at the... More

If your going to see the killing fields on a booked tour, I guess you will see the museum as well. You will learn a lot about the whole history etc

Along with the Killing Fields this really taught me a lot about recent Cambodian history. The audio tour is excellent. It takes a good few hours to get around if you try to pay close attention to all of it, but it's worth it. The one thing I will fault is that some of the information is a bit repetitive,... More

Very moving visit. Well done and now very peaceful. Far the cries of the torture of thousands of men, women and youth before the were sent to the death camps and killed. They were forced to write confessions which are on display. Out of the tens of thousands who were tortured there only 7 survived and two of them have... More
