During the period of 4 years more than million of people were killed here. It's like wiping out the whole population of Dublin, Helsinki or New Orleans. We had really emotional guide who left us completely speechless after that. And once you realise it happened in the recent history (less than 40 years ago) then you really start to feel... More

A very well audio guided museum. They were a lot of languages available. (English, Chinese.Korea, French, Italian, and more). Very sad story of what happend here. We visit the prision too same day. I personally believe is too much of emotions. I couldnt go through all the museum. A Must visit place.

A really well told but chilling recording of the macabre evil killing that went on here under the eyes of the world. The narrative is done really well, as are the exhibits. You leave with a sense of dignity at the reverance thw modern day Cambodians have given to our fellow human beings whom were killed here.

Worth seeing when you go to Phnom Penh, Cambodia to see this place. It seems quite a recent history. I hope the wold will learn from this place.

Great outdoor museum explaining the Khmer Rouge genocide. Hard to fathom. Very emotional. I would not do this plus S21 in the same day. Too much emotion and sadness to take in.

I couldn't give the review an excellent because that feels like it would diminish the importance of the site. The Killing Fields are really difficult to witness, but I felt the need to do so. The tour is done as an audio recording with labeled stops along the way. There are also stories and other interesting facts that can also... More

My visit here related to having seen the film 'Killing Fields' many years ago. The place was what I expected in fairness with minimal but sometimes profound evidence/items of interest relating to the crimes committed. The headphone narrative was sad but very interesting and informative to listen to as you walked the guided path around the Center. I will add... More

This is a must do tour when in Phnom Penh. The audio guide is very moving and thought provoking, it helps to understand the atrocities that have happened in the past.

This place is very somber. As I was walking around in the quiet with nobody talking and listening on the audio guide to the atrocities that went on here and the life of the Cambodian people at the time. It gave me a lot of time to reflect, I have visited similar places around the world while in the Army... More
