A small set up a little out of the way reasonably priced entree fees. The displays are interesting though a little depressing when it hits home that it is all so very very very real. I felt humbled and privileged to have lived a life relatively free of the impact of war. Good work by Aki ri

I preferred the land mine museum to the temples due to the fact there were no tourist buses or chaotic scenes attached. A small set up a little out of the way reasonably priced entree fees. The displays are interesting though a little depressing when it hits home that it is all so very very very real.

While the 'negative review points' are not wrong, we thoroughly enjoyed the Landmine Museum as well as the story of the creator. Our one hour tuk tuk drive was a substantial part of our enjoyment as we got to see amazing Cambodian rural life. It is indeed a great place to visit if you are 'templed out' after Angkor Wat...

First arriving Siem Reap I had a brief knowledge of the horrible past. Once visiting the museum you are exposed to the harsh reality and seriousness of the mine problem in Cambodia and in the surrounding countries. The site isn't the biggest however the guide Bill and rest of the staff were excellent at answering a range of tough problem... More

Interesting topic of great importance to Cambodia. The information was valuable. But the museum is very shabby, hot, lots of mosquitoes, disorganized, and serves as a bit of (albeit humanitarian) propaganda for the museum's founder and the students he teaches.

I thought this museum was fantastic. Bill, an American guide who has moved to Cambodia with his wife because of the museum's cause made the visit worthwhile. Bill explained the context of the war, the areas affected, the consequences of land mine proliferation and the international efforts to address land mines. He answered all our questions and his clear passion... More

Stopped off here as a way to prevent temple fatigue today as recommended by our guide. Its a really fascinating look into the terrible problem of land mines and unexploded ordiances. Lots of reading and some of the exhibits are dated, however interesting all the same and only £3 entry.

the museum is a hands on excursion into how cruel people can be. the guides are fantastic and a very reasonable $5 fee. for boys it is a great opportunity to see and hold the deadly weapons from Cambodia's past.

I took my ten year old to show him mans inhumanity to man. Interesting but you really need someone to explain it and give the background. Bill from the museum gave us a talk and the background. He made our visit. It isn't just a museum but a charitable organisation who clear landmines and help local orphans.
