Along with the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek, this Museum is a must in order to understand this horrific moment in Cambodian history. One should allocate a couple of hours for this visit. Foreigners pay an 8.00 USD entrance fee (with audio guide).

It's hard to understand what drives individuals to inflict such awful atrocities on their fellow men. We have visited a few sobering places over the years including Auschwitz but this really resonated with us. The imagery, the audio descriptions and the atmosphere was very sobering....More

During the Cambodian genocide, this old school was converted to a detention centre for over 12,000 people who were held here before being taken to the Killing Fields. At least 1.7 million died between 1975 and 1979 during the rule of the Khmer Rouge Only...More

The story of the Khmer with their prison is impressive. The audio tour is very clear. You won't enjoy this visit, but you will remember it for the rest of your live.

Not a “pleasant “ experience, but well worth it all the same. Learn about what happened, and see the awful evidence.

To be honest I had very little knowledge of what went on in Cambodia during that time so this was very educational, but also gut wrenching. What those poor people were put through was horrific. If you are in Phnom Penn and would like to...More

Hi there. Download “pass App” it will call you quick and very cheap tuk-tuk. The audio guide at killing fields is included in the $5 entry and no guide is needed. The S21 prison is quite upsetting enough without either a... More

Hi, I think you can get a guide but the audio guide is very good and offers flexibility when to listen and to what part.
