The War Museum's graveyard Soviet-era tanks (including a helicopter and jet fighter) was a powerful reminder of how recent Cambodia had experienced war. I strongly recommend having a guide take you around to explain the various exhibits, especially the atrocities that took place in Cambodia. One comes away with a renewed respect for the resilience and fortitude of the Khmer... More

The museum is $5 USD. The offer free guided tours, but they expect a tip. Please tip them, if you are a tourist visiting Cambodia then you have enough to give them a tip. They will share the stories of the war, I had a very young man that obviously, because of his age, didnt took part of the war... More

Great collection of war equipments... tanks, helicopters, canons, grenades, mines, guns, you name it. You are not even forbidden from climbing the tank. Posters with war stories, pictures of mine victims and mine clearing. What I love about it is the war veteran guide who can tell great stories in good English. He showed us his wounds and prosthesis leg.... More

upon arrival we had to wait about 5 minutes for a guide. our guide "the cat" has lived through the war and basically died several times so he can tell you a lot about the museum, the weapons and the war. the guide is free but you're always welcome to donate. there's a lot of information about the weapons and...

I had a wonderful day out here today, our guide 'moun sinath' was very informative and helpful. Learning about all of his own experiences was extremely interesting and I couldn't be more grateful that he was there to share them. Definitely recommend if you have seen enough temples!

No visit to Cambodia should be considered complete without a visit to this museum! Interesting and honest chronicle of the struggles the country has faced and what lies ahead. Engaging tour guides and impactful images and residuals of war. An absolute must!

The entrance to the museum is 5$ and tuk tuk from Siem reap was also 5$ roundtrip. It's very interesting to see and learn a little bit about the history. Informations are well written in English and I have to say that it was quite shocking for us bc we didn't have much background before going there. It's a good... More

Worth a visit and has an interesting array of weapons, tanks and trucks - some Soviet WW11 era trucks, US weapons (ex Vietnam War) and an array of AK47, M16 AND Chinese guns which you can handle (all deactivated or damaged during conflict). Most trucks and tanks are battle damaged ad in poor condition as are the MIG and helicopter.... More

Visited here in January 2017 while in Siem Reap. A guide takes you round the outdoor war museum, or you could just do it on your own. There are exhibits of real helicopters, cannons, guns etc all used during those exceptionally difficult years, depicted in the movie 'The Killing Fields.' Its the sort of place where you dont speak that... More
