Definitely, definitely visit

Extremely sad sight to see but something I think everyone who visits Cambodia should see. It provides an insight into a historical event that occurred not too long ago.

the horror that happened here is unthinkable, and even though there is not a lot to see, I highly recommend a visit so that you can experience the place where the horrors occurred. the pits where bodies were buried have been excavated and are open for viewing (without the bodies of course) and they also have the killing tree where...

Don't come here expecting to see and feel the things that happened here. The tour is left up to the imagination of those listening to the only source of information: an audio guide. Although a terrible place, it has much since recovered and nature takes care of it now. I also visited S21 and would conclude that that is a... More

This was a very thought provoking site and the poor people of Cambodia were tortured for no reason whatsoever. Very sad place!

This is one of those places that you must visit but you know that you leave disturbed. A real wake up call to the horrors that select few can inflict on humanity.

It feels odd to be giving this attraction five stars. Very sad and emotional but the history of the atrocities is very thought provoking I'm glad I went as people need to know the history of the Cambodian people

When learning about the Khmer Rogue genocide in Phnom Penh, most people do both the S21 Prison and the Killing Fields. Personally, I felt the prison was more interesting, not to mention right in the heart of the city - while yes, the killing fields were equally heartbreaking, I didn't find the exhibits there as well done, plus it requires...

This place is a must visit, it's a very moving and serious place that people need to visit. I don't want to sound all hippie but the place has a very disturbing aura when you walk around listening to the excellently narrated audio tape.

My wife and I visited here whilst staying in Phnomh Penh and travelled via Tuk Tuk from the centre of town which took about 30 minutes as it is situated 15km from the town centre. Entry was 6 dollars which also included the supply of head phones and audio commentary. Access around site is mainly on a wooden boardwalk with... More

Such a somber and humbling place. We did a guided tour - It really helped us understand the Cambodian history and appreciate what all these people went through. Brought tears to my eyes while listening to the stories. I read about the Khmer Rouge history but it was so different standing in the killing fields. Definitely worth the visit.
