War Museum Cambodia Tours

War Museum Cambodia
Refurbished in 2018, the 5-acre (2-hectare) War Museum Cambodia is devoted to the weapons of Cambodia’s many conflicts. The collection, which you’re allowed to handle, runs from tanks and fighter planes to small arms and rocket launchers. One room focuses on the landmines that have caused such suffering in Cambodia.

The Basics
Gain access to the War Museum Cambodia for a moderate fee, heavily discounted for locals; payments are in cash only, and there’s no ATM. Museum guides, all of whom have personal connections to the Cambodian conflict, are happy to answer questions in a range of languages free of charge. It’s easy to visit independently, but some Siem Reap city tours stop at the War Museum Cambodia. Consider joining a museum tour that includes a trip to the Wat Thmey Killing Fields.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The War Museum Cambodia will be of interest to Instagrammers and history buffs.
  • The museum is a must-visit for families with kids that are into weapons.
  • A small shop sells drinks, books, and souvenirs, while the museum offers Wi-Fi.
  • The War Museum Cambodia is wheelchair-accessible, although the paths are uneven in places.

How to Get There
The War Museum Cambodia stands on the outskirts of Siem Reap, about 4 miles (6 kilometers) northwest of downtown. There’s no public transport, so most travelers will want to book a driver or an organized tour.

When to Get There

The War Museum Cambodia is open from morning until late afternoon seven days a week and is rarely crowded. The site is almost entirely in the open air, so aim to visit on a dry day. There’s a reasonable amount of shade, so temperature shouldn’t be a concern.

War Sights Around Siem Reap
If you’re headed to Phnom Penh, the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek are key to understanding the Cambodian genocide and conflict. There are a few sights around Siem Reap, too. Besides the War Museum Cambodia, consider the Cambodia Landmine Museum and the Wat Thmey Killing Fields, a massacre site with a working monastery.
