This muesum is a bit out of town but worth the visit. It will take you about 2 hours to get round. it cost about $12 for a Tuk Tuk to take you there and back and the driver will wait while you walk the muesum. There are toilets at the muesum as well as a small shop.

This War museum is very informative if you like war history, culture & Cambodian. But you should go with a local guide!

A very interesting place to visit. Not like a conventional museum but a collection of weaponry from recent conflicts which has been displayed in parklike surroundings for people to walk around and inspect.

If you are a military buff this is a great place to see real weapons up close. They have been used and most have obvious battle damage. Nothing restored here. Lots of tank, APC and artillery carcasses lined up in a mango grove. Samples of mines, mortars and small arms are in open buildings on the side. I like this... More

I haven't been anywhere in the world where you have all the Vietnam War and later weapons on such ready display. Want to hold an M60? Pick it up! Lots of rusted out old tanks that have a history and you likely will have a guide that can tell you. Our guide was in too many wars and has shrapnel... More

This museum is not the main spot of Siem-Reap but it gives quite interesting information on the last war which occurred in Cambodia. Could be better organized

I didn't realize the extent of the issues the Cambodian people faced during the wars, the tour guide was informative and friendly.

I learned very little here, and walked around for about an hour. They have a nice location where they could do much more.

Dear Douglas R, Thank you for taking the time to visit our museum. It would have been handy though to read some reviews on Tripadvisor before visiting this museum. Although in the several wooden houses information is presented about the history of the war, the main characters of the war, prisons, weapons, the landmine issue, the bombing of Cambodia and...
