I am sure the Genocide Museum is a very interesting place. However there was not enough information present or offered to make the most of it.

“Next after Killing fields”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

It doesn’t really matter which order its done…Killing field or S21. Entrance is $2. Some of the photos were a bit too much for me. But a must see to see how this went from a high school to a prison and what went on in there. Time needed, no more than an hour.

“another example of horrors of war”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Walk around the old prison see the old cells some with blood still on ceiling. Visit the old cells and see the instruments of cruilty. The pictures of some of the detainees on show. You cannot help but be moved by the dispair in their face.

“Very interesting but tough”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Very interesting a key part of the country's history but quite tough to visit especially emotionally. Make sure to plan some r&r after. Wouldn't recommend it for kids.

“Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (Security Prison - S21)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

It will be good to have a tour guide with us to visit this place. Can be quite terrifying with equipments exhibited for torturing the victims. It can be quite disturbing and emotionally moving.
