Horrible but recommended.

Traveling is not always comfortable, and some of our most memorable experiences were certainly not always comfortable. This is one to "grow on"

Wow is all I can say. I'm a pretty big history buff and this was one of the best and unique experiences. The way they preserved the history is awesome and I definitely recommend getting the headphones to listen to the narrative.

This is a very well done monument to the recent past atrocities that went on in Cambodia while most of the world either stood by or aggregated the situation. A very harrowing monument, done with care and feeling in a matter-of-fact way, not sure that any other place of detention has seen as many, many thousands go in with only... More

As weird as it is to rate this 5 stars, it's a must see. It's very moving once inside as they have individual portraits of the victims. It's 3usd in without the audio. See here before the killing fields

You have to go this museum if you're in Phnom Penh. This is a must do visit to get a better understanding of Cambodia and the trauma of the Khmer Rouges regime. Be prepared to see things that will make you very uncomfortable and hear stories that will bring tears to your eyes... This horror needs to be remembered and... More

A really interesting place to go before the killing fields. The audio tour is a must and is very informative and each room/section is different and insightful

Glad there is a garden to sit in and reflect. Just wish painting and maintence staff worked when their were no visitors.Their shouts to each other was disconcerting in a... More

This and other museum sites in Cambodia serve as reminders of what man can do to his fellow man. It is a must visit if in Phnom Penh but be warned the full story is graphic and harrowing.

Although I had a good knowledge of event I was absolutely shocked and horrified. That being said it is very respectful and well done. Another site that is so very important to visit.

There's a saying that history repeats itself ... And it did so many times! Too many times! Everyone should see this museum and take note! Humanity should be above war and violence, should relearn altruism, compassion and love!
