We visited as part of a tuk tuk tour of Siem Reap; it's not the S21 killing fields place in Phnom Penh but it's still incredibly powerful. The stories written around the place add a chilling level of reality to the now tranquil site you see. Not one to spend hours wandering around, but well worth 30 mins-1 hour of... More

Probably the highlight of our trip to Cambodia. Hardly what you could call "enjoyable" and I certainly found in difficult to hold back tears - but I would recommend anyone to visit this place, given the opportunity. At the very least, it brought home to me, the magnitude of the atrocities that were inflicted on these beautiful people. Heartbreaking, yes... More

This is a place that you need to see, as it is part of the modern history of Cambodia and It brings home the true feelings of revulsion at the way man can treat man.

This is a very small grounds and most of it is used as a temple now and the kids and monks are maybe more to see than the killing fields. You can walk around in about 20 or 30 minutes. A few photo and artist boards in many languages to read. No fee

This museum I found to be very disturbing. You saw many human body parts. And read of the forms of abuse.

Unexplainable. It truly renders you speechless. It is hard to believe that this has happened to people in out life time, just a short time ago is just mind boggling. A must do. We organised a van to drive us out there which we were grateful not to have gone with the tuk tuk option! Its a bit of a... More

Was previously going to hire a tour guide, but when hubby & I saw the audio equipment we felt this was adequate. We felt you need the audio as it explains much more of the history & gives personal stories.

Most of the pictures are displayed here already. Didn't get much from here without a guide. Save your visit until Phnom Penh would be my advise

It is a very interesting, moving activity. It makes you realise, again, how disgusting our species can be.
