This museum is small, built by an ex soldier, but is worth a stop on your way to/from banteay srei. $5 entrance fee goes towards the children they look after affected by landmines and towards clearing more mines.

This is not an easy place to visit, but please go anyway. Modest in scale, it is impressive on many levels, both sad and uplifting. It shows the best in humanity arising from the worst.

Something that surprised me from my first day in Siem Reap is to see people amputated, I didn't want to ask for respect, but as my days there started to finish I asked to the guy that was working in the hotel, he told me that it was because the war and if I wanted to know more about it... More

Though this place is rich in history and emotion, it's quite small with very limited things to see. But if you're interested in seeing bombs and a glimpse of Cambodia's bravery and survival, then please go.

I am sorry the Landmine Museum did not live up to your expectations. We do offer guided tours of the museum and the guide can give you a much more detailed history of the landmines and the conflict that engulfed this little country for nearly 35 years. The museum contains nearly 4,000 pieces of unexploded ordnance, from landmines to 5,000... More

This Museum gives a deep history of what went down when pol pot lost his marbles and the money you spend actually goes into the orphanage that is run by the museum. it has 4 rooms with detailed information on what went down and is still happening in the country.

We visited the land mine museum today and are so glad we took the time to visit this place. We hired a driver for a day, and whilst it is a way to go (about 25km) the team at the museum greatly appreciate visitors and its a great drive outside of Siem Reap. We had the advisor Bill Morse show... More

As a Westerner who has had the luxury of travelling through much of Asia, I am constantly reminded of what a privileged life we lead and how much we have to be grateful for. Touring through this museum (you pay $5 to enter), you gain a further apreciationg for the Cambodian people, particularly Aki Ra who rightly won the CNN... More

Someone else mentioned its a long way to go just to go to this museum, and that is right, so don't, unless you really want to, but this was on our own private itinerary I thought out of something we wanted to see on the way up to the ACCB (Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity) with our own private...

Small place, can be guided on tour or view alone. The reality of the war comes home to you here. We did not want to dwell on the violence during our visit to Cambodia, but this was an interesting diversion and enough to make us aware of some of the past. Worth spending some time there
