A must visit for anyone in Phnom Penh, you can't really say you enjoy such a visit as the atrocities are so terrible. A reminder to the world that such sickening genocide should never occur again

I found my visit to be incredibly informative. I learned so much and the audio-guides are really helpful and much better than I thought they’d be (they’re available in 4/5 languages). It took me 2.5 hours at a reasonable pace so I would definitely plan...More

A bit underwhelmed. Horrific part of history, but the center was not as good as it should have been. Exhibits were old, dirty and faded. Would have benefited from a good overhaul

It’s really hard to know where to begin. Probably the quietest tourist destination in Phnom Pen for two reasons. Firstly the audio tour is so well done, it guides you through the centre/fields with extra add on survivor stories. It’s very easy to navigate and...More

It depends. If you're never going back to Cambodia I would suggest going. It's a totally different atmosphere from Tuol Slang. It is after all the killing fields - literally. If however Cambodian history is not of interest... More
