Well worth a visit to learn more about the history of Cambodia and what the people have faced over the years. It’s a 15 min tuk-tuk drive from the city. Our young guide took an hour to explain the history and the relics answering many of our questions about the country’s history of war. Most of the entry fee goes back to improving the museum.

It happened quite some time ago when me and my husband visited this 'museum'. We were late and we were the only persons there although there was a man at the entrance and with him we could buy the tickets. We gave the money for it to him and he took it and put it in his pocket at the same time he was chuckling like a child and said us to go inside. But we didnt receive the tickets and when we asked again for it twice suddenly he raged and insulted us. We were stunned we walked around inside in shock for a short time but soon decided to leave this place right away. Very bad experience.

The War History Museum in Siem Reap houses a variety of; equipment, photographic works and story boards, which are a record of a globally significantly and diabolical time, in the last century, that being the murderous reign of communist dictator Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, in long suffering Cambodia. Evidence of the involvement of larger Cold War players in the conflict in Kampuchea, can be seen here. There is a decommissioned montage of; landmines, tanks, planes, missile launchers, bombs, bullets and guns, built by super-power countries including; China, The USA and the former Soviet Union (USSR). I found it interesting that much of the military hardware used in the so-called 'Cambodian Civil War' of the 1970s through to 1990s, was originally manufactured for use in World War Two (WWII). A solemn visit to the War History Museum of Siem Reap (additional perspective via the 1984 film 'The Killing Fields'), should serve as a timely warning about the potential for evil excesses, in many so-called people's revolutions. A walk through this impressive museum, including some of the more morbid displays (children should definitely be accompanied by a responsible adult/s) it houses, did bring on some reflection.

We hired a tuk tuk for the day for 10 USD, and visited the war museum as well as other places. Many ruminants of the war on display, a lot of information, very interesting and sad, important for westerners to understand what this country have been through.

This museum is heartbreaking and so worth it. It moved me to tears multiple times. They have the war machines but also countless stories of the people and what they endured. Lots of information and it showed the beauty and resilience of the Cambodian people. I have so much respect for Cambodia and their people. This is a must do. Come and support. For those of you who called this “rust objects in a field” I’m embarrassed for your lack of culture and sympathy. Truly your privilege and arrogance will leave you unhappy in your life. This was a beautiful tribute and taught me so much about the history of this area and that’s what traveling is about. Learning and seeing and experiencing.
