Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum
We continue to Tuol Sleng Museum. In 1975 Tuol Svay Prey High School was taken over by Pol Pot’s security forces and turned into a prison known as Security Prison (S-21). It rapidly became the largest centre of detention and torture in the country. Prisoners were repeatedly tortured and coerced into naming family members and close associates, who were in turn arrested, brought to S21, tortured and eventually killed. Spend time discovering the harrowing truths of the prison.

Note: National Museum, Silver Pagoda and Royal Palace are open every day. However, the Silver Pagoda and the Royal Palace may be closed without prior notice while H.M. the King is in the residence.

Respectful Tour into Cambodia’s Genocide History
Kerry_A, 28-07-2022
Given the subject matter of this tour we felt that our tour guide dealt with it extremely respectfully. His knowledge was superb as was his English. The whole tour was really moving and I would urge anyone visiting Cambodia to take this tour and not forgot what the Cambodia people went through.
Heartbreaking and informative experience
Pauline_S, 11-04-2022
Our tour guide Smiley was wonderful and his English was superb. He was very knowledgeable and was able to help us understand the truly tragic events surrounding the Killing Fields and S21. While it is a very confronting experience, the tour provides a look into a history that is hard to fully appreciate when reading about it.
Meeting the two remaining survivors of S21 was an honour we won’t forget.
