Well organized audio guided tour for this place. The audio guide could be long winded, I'm allowed to play/pause/rewind, but not allowed to fast forward. Some pictures can be too brutal for some people.

The best way to understand the history of this place is to hire a guide within the museum. You can also hire audio guides. It is nothing short of horrifying & you can feel & smell death even to this day. No pictures or video...More

You will leave this place really sad and impressed about how bad humans can be. However very important to keep the memory alive to avoid this happening again.

The place is a must to understand the Khmer genocide. However, the auidoguide was very long and sometimes not that interesting.

This is a very moving place with so much history, hard to believe that the atrocities occurred so recently.

Another must-see sight in Phnom Penh. The cells are terrifying. I'm not sure I believe in ghosts, but this place feels haunted. What also struck me was how meticulously the Khmer Rouge documented everything (reminded me of the Nazis) - with mug shots of everyone...More

The visit to Tuol Sleng has been informational yet emotionally moving. The audio tour is handled well and the environment of the area is quiet. The many benches help in finding a place to sit when listening. Would recommend as a must-visit place when coming...More

We were on a G Adventures tour so this was included on our tour. listening when going round to other guides, they are all very knowledgeable. I would say regardless the cost, it is worth it. Strange to say that I 'm sure... More

I did the hop on/hop off bus (not like in major cities) for $15 US which picks you up at your hotel and brings you back, goes to S21 and the Killing Fields. Highly recommend it.
