Small Outdoor Museum, with good story telling about the difficulty times in Cambodia.

Good selection of rusting Tanks, weapons, land mines and a helicopter and jet.

Good to spend 30mins to an Hour reading and for photography it’s good!

If you want a break from temples, it’s worth seeing! Photographers will like the interesting views.

Also near the silk farm which was also good!

I had a fascinating tour from one of the guides which gives an alternative perspective on the history of Cambodia and provides a lot of information. The space is beautiful and there are interesting exhibits but it’s all about the tour. Don’t miss this!

The $5 entry fee was well worth it. As we entered I wasn’t expecting a lot- there’s a lot of military vehicles and guns, and that’s not really my thing, but the information on the display boards is what makes it. There’s a detail guide to the history of Cambodia and the Pol Pot regime. Accompanied by photos and survivor stories, it makes a very emotive and harrowing experience. An important place to visit if you want to educate yourself about the country and it’s struggles.

Having read several reviews I went to this museum with an open mind. It’s a completely different world to Pub Street and the other typical tourist traps and ok it’s basically a bunch of rusting tanks and machine guns in the middle of nowhere but the significance of it is enormous. What happened in Cambodia and what was inflicted on these people supported by several of our Western nations should never be forgotten. The simplicity of the museum and its atmosphere was striking and the sincerity of our guide touching and meaningful. I saw one western child trying on one of the Khmer Rouge helmets and holding one of the guns in spite of the « do not touch » sign. The fact that many of the Khmer Rouge were just kids was completely lost on him - and his parents. So if you are interested in history and learning from it the 5$ it’s definitely worth it. If it’s just to visit « a museum » and take a few selfies don’t bother going, you are wasting your money.

The War Museum in Siem Reap has a variety of weapons, vehicles and actual land mines on display. Although the posted information is worn, stained, faded & tired looking, it offers excellent information on the war-torn past and the fight for Cambodia and the Cambodian people. I learned a lot. This museum, like any war museum leaves you more informed but with a heavy heart. I appreciated the museum & recommend a visit; however, this is not a place for children.
