Open air museum with multiple guns and war artifacts on display. Not a very clear path or storyline to follow, just to see the tanks and other equipment just laying in the lawn. Wasn’t offered a tour, which I’d recommend to at least add some meaning to the museum.
Visited this morning and when arrived asked for a guide. The guy (Sinarth) we spoke to was a survivor from the time of the "killing fields", the only guide there who actually experienced the horrors. He took us round and described in detail what it was like back then and how even now, only six days ago his daughter's friend had her legs blown off by one of the millions of unexploded mines. Very graphic description from a man who as a young boy, went out to the fields one day and returned to find his whole family murdered. So lucky to get him as a guide. We bought a book about his experiences and he signed it for us. Very honoured.
A large collection of tanks, artillery and weapons from the war. This isn't a museum in the usual sense, but more a collection of destroyed or out of action vehicles located mainly in the last few decades around siem reap. - its great to see them in the condition they're in, (and there's a lot more than the photos show) rather than all painted and restored. I loved it, because it's so different, but some more written information is needed at the displays, also wear insect repellant. Really worth a visit.
I am not a huge fan of war museums because i feel anxious knowing the story behind it. But i still had the couraged to do this tour. I rate this 5 star because i am amazed on how they managed to restore these equipments. For us to see or reflect it's history.
Really great place to visit. It's outdoors so recommend bug repellent. I highly recommend getting a guide to this place, just for the information. The guide was free, but we gave a good tip and a donation to the museum. Without the guide, you would be walking around not really knowing anything other than what is written on the boards. It was a humble yet morbid experience, especially when the armoury that are there for you to handle if you wish, are the actual ones that have killed thousands. Really would recommend a visit here
