Another sad place to visit where Cambodians were imprisoned and tortured during the Pol Pot era. We met a survivor of the prison and bought his book about his experiences in this prison.

Visited her after our visit to The Killing Fields. Very hard to describe the emotions you go through visiting such a horrendous place. Keeping in mind the Khymer Rouge regime is still in recent history the museum therefore has graphic photos and actual torture instruments on show. It is harrowing but I feel it is a must if you are to appreciate Cambodia's dark history. I found the room dedicated to the people who are being tried for crimes against humanity especially insightful.

It's hard to see and read all the atrocities the Cambodians have been through, yet they are the most kindness and open country, again not a family or tourist photo place, this is a time to reflect. You may even meet survivors and please take the time to hear there story I spoke with one and this will stay with me forever.

I was there in 2008. Did not know it was on tripadvisor. I have been to Babi Yar and Auschwitz but somehow this exhibit is one of the most powerful I have ever seen. You can feel the sorrow, the waste of human life. Combine this with a tour out to the killing fields and you can sense the low points of Cambodia history. Yes the temples in Siem Reap are nice to see but this is modern history in the capital.

Incredibly sad and depressing but an important part of history that needs to be remembered.
The photo's of the victims break your heart. Hoping that history never repeats itself
