I'd recommend getting the audio guide (instead of getting a tour guide) and taking your time to explore the exhibits and to reflect. I am not Cambodian but I found the experience incredibly personal and I left with a desire to learn more. It is...More

This museum is a must if you're visiting Phnom Penh. Make sure you get an audio guide which tells you everything you need to know about the horrors and history of this place.

So devastating but a must see. Helpful to read about the genocide ahead of time for more history and understanding. I strongly recommend, "First They Killed My Father".

A visit to this museum is a must for anyone visiting Phnom Penh. It brings to life the brutal reality of war and the devasting way humans are treated in the name of political ideology. Take tissues.

Recommended to use the audio guide. Quite awful experience, but a must do for education about the Khmer Rouge regime and the genocide. Good bookshop in the inner right corner of the museum area.

Audio tour was very good. Some of the images were very difficult to look at. The level of brutality to inmates difficult to comprehend.

You didn't mention whether they are using assistive devices but, either way, there are lots of opportunities to sit if they cannot manage getting around the property. I would absolutely suggest taking them - I personally... More

I did the hop on/hop off bus (not like in major cities) for $15 US which picks you up at your hotel and brings you back, goes to S21 and the Killing Fields. Highly recommend it.

No dress code but it's hot and also a very sombre place, treat it like a Buddhist temple for dress I'd say
