It was worth the $5 but its quite low-budget and I wouldn't go too far out of my way or dedicate much of my day to it. We were in and out in about 30-45 minutes.
It is unforgettable historical about civil war in Cambodia and it was so complicated war ever. It is a good place in town if you have time to visit this place. It takes about 10 minutes drive by car or TukTuk. Highly recommended place and war museum. Visit it if you are in Siem Reap.
