Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum
The Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum is a museum in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. The site is a former high school which was used as the notorious Security Prison 21 (S-21) by the Khmer Rouge regime from its rise to power in 1975 to its fall in 1979. Tuol Sleng in Khmer; means "Hill of the Poisonous Trees" or "Strychnine Hill".
The National Museum in Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia, is the country's leading historical and archaeological museum. It houses the world's largest collection of Khmer art, although as a centre of Khmer historical commemoration it tends to be overshadowed by the great temple complex at Angkor and the associated museums and displays in the Siem Reap region.
Killing Fields Museum
The Museum was founded by Dara Duong, a survivor from the 1975-1979 Killing Fields of Cambodia. There were five family members including his father that were killed by the Khmer Rouge (Pol Pot) regime when he was 5 years old. For over 10 years Dara lived in the refugee camps along the Cambodian and Thai border. He resettled in the US in 1999.
Cambodia Landmine Museum
The Cambodia Landmine Museum was opened in 1999 to promote mine awareness and education for both tourists and Cambodian people. Landmines will likely be a problem in Cambodia for many years to come. Through awareness, safety, and prevention, we strive to protect Cambodian communities from further suffering and devastation.
