War Museum Cambodia, Siem Reap
Categories: Military Museums, Museums
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.
