This place was very educational, and it really pulled on my heart strings. Unfortunately, the rooms are dimly lit, there is no tour guide available, and almost everything is behind glass, so a flash camera is all but useless. Don't get me wrong, I support the cause of the place, I learned a lot, I definitely recommend going there, but... More

Land mines are the scourge of so many countries around the world. A deadly legacy that continues to kill long after the conflict is over. Kampuchea was ravage by hostile conflict for over 30 years and the country is littered with land mines and UXO of every type and description. When you come to visit don't forget to bring donations...

So incredible what Aki-Ra has achieved in his lifetime, and what hope he has given to so many families and children in Cambodia. Really a worth while cause as well as a very insightful and interesting museum. Lots of bombs, land mines and other artillery (all free from explosives) to view. Easy to read displays that help paint a picture... More

The people who run the museum are working very hard to help the victims of land mines and the video tells a sobering story of the Khmer Rouge and the amount of mines still in the ground in Cambodia.

This is a really interesting museum which is run by a individual. it gives a history of landmines in the region as well as showing a collection of them. Add this on to your temple trip "Srei"

The museum is situated about 45min outside Siem Reap by tuttut. It was the rainy season and I enjoyed the ride in cool weather. There are folders in the first room that serve as self-serve guides to the museum. I also appreciated certain facts better from Bill, a volunteer at the museum. Don't expect too much from a $3 (soon... More

We went there last week and were really impressed. We wanted a day out doing something different than just the temples and saw this in the lonely planet. It’s about 24km away from Siem reap but the ride out there is stunning countryside. When we got there was an American man giving a tour around the museum and explaining all... More

This is a bit of a way out of town but worth the journey. Its founder has a fascinating history through some of Cambodia's worst times. There is a lot of information and an informative video. The centre looks after children wounded by land mines and has a wish list of things they need (these include mostly stationery and school... More

For most people visiting Siem Reap, they are aiming mainly to visit the temples of Angkor. However, on our last day there we decided to make the journey out to visit this museum. It took about 30 minutes by car and was well worth it. The museum is small but has a lot of detail about the founder and landmines... More

It's not flash, but it is of immense social and political value. We bought the book and learned lots. We took a taxi but a Tuktuk would have been fine.
