The memorial at Choeung Ek portrays the darkest part or Cambodia's history with an appropriate measure of reality and dignity. The audio guide, included in the entrance fee, explains what happened at Choeng Ek but also provides the historical context and personal stories from survivors of the Khmer Rouge Era. The museum is small but clearly laid out and helps to further understand what's shown on the tour.
I feel uncomfortable thinking of Choeng Ek as a 'tourist attraction' and I found the visit disturbing. Nonetheless, if you want to understand what Cambodia has been through in very recent history you absolutely have to go.
