This was top of our list when visiting Phnom Penh and it's a very sad place. The audio tour is very informative and easy to follow, we paid $6 for entry and audio guide. I'd definitely recommend visiting here and give yourself about 1-3 hours depending on how much detail you want to get out of the audio logs. (There's... More

A moving place with sadness but important to let all know what went on! Not a place to take photos out of respect but buy a book and read about it more!

S-21, as the site was known, makes for a chilling reminder of man's capacity for evil. Combined with the Choeung Ek Genocidal Centre, this makes for a sobering day of reflection.

The buildings and cells were still there and pictures of the inmates. It was truly horrifying and saddening to see this. Can't believe how it all happened and without anyone from the outside really knowing. It's very interesting to read survivors stories. There were some nice display boards and the English was translated well. Worth a visit

This is not a fun place to visit. It is however educational about the Cambodian genocide that took place from 1975-79. Would not take kids here. My wife had to leave several of the rooms..very informative and depressing.

Words can hardly describe the experience of going to Tuol Sleng museum. This former Red Khmer torture camp is open for visit and refers in every way possible to the cruelties that took place between 1975 & 1979. A must see when you're in PP. The audio tour is available in a large number of languages and tells you a... More

This is a must do visit if you are in Penom Penh but be warned it is hard work especially you are a sheltered European. The Cambodian people and indeed the government are keen that visitors do go and that the horrors are not forgotten and it's only when you speak to local people that you meet on your travels... More

From start to finish we thought this museum was great. Did the audio tour and must have been there well over two hours. Quite thought provoking and sad at times but a highly worthwhile visit. Recommended.
