We did a lot of research about the killing Fields and hoped for rich personal accounts at this museum. The museum is very short, poorly translated and the exhibits are very disjointed. There was no guide available when we went, so maybe that makes the difference. We were very disappointed, because this is a significant historical landmark.

Harrowing account of the facts of 1975-1979 on a site used as killing field. The grounds are living quarters for monks, and the visit walks you through different imagery of historical events and human recounts of torture, hunger and death. Sites like these are a must visit for Cambodians and foreigners alike, a thoroughly emotional experience.

A place to remind us human beings can be very cruel to each other to the extent of torturing and killing them more brutal than animals. You can view skeleton remains here of some of the victims murdered by the Khmer Rogue regime between 1975-1979. This Killing Field memorial needs to be rejunevated in terms of building repaint and story telling and hisrtorical displays in order to keep the memory alive and remind us to avoid such tragedy of re-occurence.The Buddhist temple which also houses a monastry in operation where monks can be seen doing their meditation.

More interaction and multimedia. At least a guide explaining should be sufficient. As it is now the visitor is not experiencing the drama of kher rouge orribile dictature

Small museum with paintings and placards telling the horrors of the dark days in Cambodian history. Must read the signs to follow the history and story. Outside there is an uncovered mass grave with actual bones of victims of the atrocities. Not a long visit but a sad reminder of the Cambodian tragic past.

This was a difficult visit and in all honesty we skimmed through, it was just too hard.
It is unbelievable how cruel humans are capable of being.
It made us so grateful that we have lived our years with peace and freedom.

A very sad learning experience about the cruelty of human beings & the suffering of people. It shows how inhuman people can be at the time of civil war.

A moving and informative experience. Although a smaller exhibit than Phnom Penh, this is more than enough to take in.

The personal accounts and photographs make the scale and horror all too real. Important for all of us to understand what we humans are capable of doing to each other
