War Museum Cambodia, Siem Reap

3.8
#3 of 16 in Museums in Siem Reap
Military Museum Museum
Hold small arms and feel the difference between the M16 and the AK47 at War Museum Cambodia, which displays a lethal mix of US, Soviet, and Chinese military hardware and claims to be the only war museum in Cambodia. A wide range of artillery pieces, Soviet T54 tanks, a Mig-19 jet, Mil Mi6 helicopters, and 85-mm divisional gun D-44, and even Chinese Shenyang F-6 fighter jets have been collected since 1999. A huge collection of land mines and wartime photographs tell stories of the armed conflict in Cambodia, which raged for the last three decades of the 20th century. Located between Siem Reap and the airport, the museum offers some hands-on insights into recent conflicts in the country, explained by four free guides, two of whom are war veterans who used to fight on opposing sides.

Where to stay in Siem Reap

Siem Reap offers attractive accommodations on every budget. Inexpensive family-run guesthouses provide clean, private rooms with access to the host's wealth of information. Hostels catering to backpackers cluster around the old market squares. Four- and five-star resorts welcome guests to retreat from the city into sleek modern interiors or rustic village havens, while mid-range hotels with sparkling pools fill in the spectrum. All can be booked online in advance, but with the abundant options at hand you shouldn't have much trouble finding a room upon arrival.
