Highly recommend taking the audio tour at $8. This works perfectly as you are able to take you own time to learn about this tragic time. Even though it’s busy everyone is quietly listening and it feels more respectful.

A sad and bad history for Cambodian people last century during Khmer Rouge period. A small converted to a torturing camp where hundreds of thousands of educated people were sent for confessions. Hope this period will end forever

Literally anyone who was suspected of plotting against the Angkar ("the organisation") was routinely brought here en masse, and tortured to death...More
