I went to the museum after I had been to the killing fields. The museum is fairly simply laid out but this simplicity has an incredible impact. You walk round a maze of rooms ,in the first are just rows of pictures of victims. The other rooms are the different types of cells the prisoners were kept in. There was plenty of information. In the final room are large paintings painted by the few survivors depicting the atrocities carried out. The experience just leaves you chilled through and has a strange eerie silence about it despite there being a lot of people walking round.

Vann Nath was one of the 7 survivors from this place. He writes conflict resolution children's books available in bookstores in PP. The book Jayk and Joch tells the story of two monkeys fighting over a mango and how it is resolved. Suitable for all ages. He says... Children and youth are like new shoots of bamboo -our future tomorrow. Solve all conflict peacefully. No matter how serious the problem is, there is always a way to remedy it peacefully, fairly and just............ how this man walked away from here with such inspiration in his heart and not retaliation is truly amazing.

This is the place where they torture the victims during Khmer Rouge before sending them to the killing field for execution. However, many of the photo exhibitions were pretty run-down with fading of the photographs and wordings.

Still, it is one of the main attractions in Phnom Penh.
