What people are saying:

located in the outskirts of Phnom Penh, it’s an eye opening historical place though a depressing one. ticket is around 3$ and audio guide for same, 6$ total. once you start your tour, you will start imaging how all this genocide started by Khymer ruler against his own people. their are several sites which makes you go deep into thinking how can humans commit such atrocities and at one point you may just fail to imagine it in your head. a must see place in Phnom Penh.

    Incredibly moving

    A very eerie place. Very evident it was formerly a school. There is not information everywhere, but I like how underplayed it is.

Additional Information


When Phnom Penh fell to the Khmer Rouge, this former high school was converted into the detention and interrogation center known as S-21. Political enemies suspected of treason were brought here and tortured for confessions. Very few detainees survived S-21, but the brutal history of Toul Sleng was documented by the Khmer Rouge themselves in the postmortem photos of many of the victims. The tragedy of S-21 is almost too much to bear, whether you choose to walk through the buildings alone or with one of the excellent guides registered with the museum.
