    Maybe the most interesting attraction in the city, it is a must. A good 1,5hrs needed to see and listen everything. Very striking. Entrance 6USD with audio, take audio to have a better understanding.

    We had Mr. Lungdi as our tour guide and he was extremely knowledgeable. We highly recommend getting yourself a tour guide. A must if you want to learn about Cambodia's not so long ago history.

    A bit hardcore for sensible people but the place worth absolutely to pay a visit. You can find some interesting copies of Dvd and books about Cambodia/pol pot regime from vendors inside. Don't miss it

    If you visit one place in Phnom Penh, this should be it. Grim and basic - the museum is simply the old prison with a handful of displays and an audio guide - it is truly horrifying.

    Must visit for your stay but bring good nerves. What you will see is hard. Plan a day and also visit the killing fields

    A great reminder that a genocide can occur next door or at my door anytime, with UN and other world organizations making things worse, not solving them. Keep your eyes opened and learn from history!

    Visit before the killing fields for some contextualisation. The video played on building 3 is shocking, I felt nauseous watching it. An educational experience but not for the faint of heart.

    A couple of the prisoner survivors attend at the museum some days. We talked with one of the seven survivors Bou Meng. See photo of his book attached.

    One of the 2 remaining living victims is often here. He will sign copies of his biography. A living reminder of what mankind is capable of.

    To say that I love the place is just incorrect. But this place teaches you a lot about the Cambodian story.

    There are two of the original 7 survivors still there selling their books. Very humbling to meet them.

    There is a local watering hole to the right as you're exiting the museum. Keep this in mind. You'll probably need a drink when you're done.

    This was a former school turned prison/torture and detention center. Also known as S-21 in Cambodian history.

    Come here prior to the Genocidal center aka Killing Fields. Very informative. $2/person.

    It's very intense and sad, but don't leave Cambodia without giving its recent history the time it deserves

    Odd choosing "love" about this place, but it's a must visit. Give it 2 hours. Don't rush.

    The place is a bit creepy but certainly a must-visit if you want to know more about the Khmer Rouge and their victims.

    A truly chilling experience of what humanity is capable, a reminder to people that it was not monsters that caused this evil by people themselves.

    We got a guide to tell us the story of the prison which was very insightful. Not recommended for children. Go here prior to Killing Fields.
