We paid our entry fee and then were offered the services of a guide without being assertive or aggressive. Based on other reviews we’d already decided to get one and the guide is what turned our visit from a 20 minute stop looking at a bunch of rusting war machines, rifles, mines etc, into an informative and insightful visit. Museum is almost on the edge of town and we had to haggle to get a reasonable price from tuk-tuk driver. Then he decided to wait on us. For the trip back he wanted double. Have your negotiation hat on. We got out and starting walking rather than ruin the prices for every other tourist. We got about 10 yards before he changed his mind.

This museum gives a complete overview of the war in Cambodia. It is an important story for anyone who comes to the area to witness. The guides are passionate and knowledgeable. This is a must for anyone visiting Siem Reap.

If you don’t know much about Cambodian history, this is a good start! Tour guides are walking around and we just asked one to show us around and he took us throughout. He was very knowledgeable! It’s a small museum and all outside but overall a really great experience!

This was an excellent small museum with many interesting fact sheets to read as you walked around. I would have liked to have bought a small book of them to read later but there wasn’t this option.
There were no guides available either which was a pity.
Some people have reviewed the museum as being unkept but I really felt the enormity of the war with the rusty guns and tanks and how much better it is to see them unused now.
The new landmine exhibit was heartbreaking and very well done.

We visited this place as my nephew is very interested in war history and the place was fascinating. It is off the beaten track but well worth searching out.

You arrive and wait for a guide. We had Sahn (spelling?), a nice young man who spoke good English and told us all about the recent wars Cambodia has had and the players and politics involved. He was brutally honest and didn't slant his tour to favor any side in the conflicts. He walks you around the displays showing the different types of weapons, ammunition, and vehicles that are on display. He also brings you to a large room that houses many mines and larger caliber shells. He was able to answer many questions about the politics and wars as well as the individual pieces of machinery. He was simply fantastic.

After the tour we went back to read more of the displays and check out in depth the weapons and vehicles. Many of the items you can pick up and hold or even climb on some of the vehicles. They have many displays with good information if you take time to read them.

This museum may not be for everyone. If war and weapons is not your thing then dont bother. But if you want to see the vehicles and weapons you have read about in books and seen in movies this place is for you. I really encourage you to find a guide who can also give you some detailed information and answer questions - he really made this museum more understandable.
