Reviewed May 10, 2014

After visiting the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum, we were filled with anger at the cruel ways that the soldiers treated the prisoners so that they were able to extort information from them. The artefacts of torture that the soldiers used on the prisoners are placed in rooms. Hiring a tour guide will be good as he/she will be able to you in better detail of the deeds and methods that the soldiers carry out.

Well conserved museum where you feel living in the time when Khmer Rouge were torturing the prisoners.

I came here after visiting the Killing Fields. You could go into the rooms in which so many horrors took place. When I went, it was relatively empty so it was difficult to go alone into the cells where victims of the Khmer Rouge were imprisoned and tortured. Photos of the victims are all over the walls and there are anecdotes for you to read. Worth a visit!

Even more shocking and moving than Choeung Ek. The empty rooms with only a bed and some other artifacts and the rooms with the endless boards of pictures of the victims of the Khmer-regime. An absolute must see. It is wise to take a guided tour.
