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.

If you are truly interested in the history and in militaria, this place is literally a junk yard. aroured vehicles and weaponry are sitting out in the weather, there has been zero restoration attempt but also no prevention of the rust and general decay of the things on display. Rotting vegeration holds water in areas where the rust is simply eating away the metal. Some vehicles are so stripped that to call them ""skeletons" is to be too kind. There has been no maintenance in the information products like posters and written material. The "undercover" areas which hold small arms have had their thatch roofs rotten away to let in the rain. There are no real themes, and there is great duplication of some equipment. Just how many scores of the same caliber recoiless round cannister can you look at? The 5 dollar fee would be fine if ti was a professional display, but sadly it is not reflective of the worth. You will just woinder where that money is being spent. They should go to the CMAC Museum in Siem Reap to see how it is done properly.
