Save your money for a couple of drinks on "pub street". Not really worth the time and trouble and tuk tuk fee.

Hesitant to post this review, trying to be kind. Paid $5 each, not a lot money we know but save your entrance fee and the tuk tuk ride. It’s not worth it. Plot is overgrown, photos all water damaged. Walked around by ourselves. Not even...More

Pretty sad. $5 entrance fee collected per person, no pamphlet, no guide and a large unattended yard to self-direct and walk yourself around. The noble intent of this place from years past appears to have been neglected. We give to charities and good causes, but...More

After the crowds of happy selfie-snappers at Angkor Wat, it was shocking to be the only visitor at this small outdoor self-guided museum nearby. The horrific history of Cambodia in the late 20th century is on display here through rusted weaponry, faded photos, and informational...More

Thanks for your visit and thoughtful and kind review. It really is a special place where you can reflect further on the importance of this not so distant history.

While it seemed a great place, noone was there to show us around. Someone who spoke no English took $20 off of us.

So sorry to hear that you had a poor experience at the museum. Clearly we had an off day. Please send us an email in the future if you come back to see us again and give us another chance.

Small museum but filled with insightful pictures and items conserved from the war period. Descriptive information shows you what happened in the past and how people affected are now. Good to spend a couple of hours

Thanks for your thoughtful and insightful review. We too think the same about the museum. It is indeed an important place to reflect on recent history and our place in it.

Thank you for visiting. Reflecting further on corporate complicity is something worth considering. Please spread the word! We are a small museum that needs support and visitors.

Upon arriving at the museum it looks as though it may only take you ten minutes or so to wander around. However as you make your way through the weapons reading how many rounds per minute they can fire, it starts to sink in the...More
