While the temples are amazing, this was our first real insight to what has happened to Cambodia in the past and still happening with land mines minds. We payed $12 to get there and back from the city centre and it is worth every dollar. Touching work has been done by the founder of the museum. I left i wanted... More

The museum is small but really great and it's really impressive how to see and read about the mines in real and not only from the books! The money was really worth spending there,for the future of the museum and the children! It's a nice experience to see the mines in the garden how small and invisible they can be... More

Here you will know about the founder of the museum and CNN Heroe, Aki Ra. His stories with the Khmer Rouge, defection and eventual role as land mine remover. A must visit, really. Makes your visit to Cambodia more meaningful knowing its harrowing past and the hopeful future its people are aspiring for. The place though needs a lot of... More

Our tour guide was an American guy who knew everything and anything about landmines. Talked for half an hour straight without a stutter and answered every question in detail. His work along with Aki Ra's foundations are truly incredible and a story definitely worth hearing.

Terrible road trip out around 30-45minutes but worth it. Not a big place but it has well written stories, presentations, war and mine stuff to see. There is an orphanage there but you dont get to go in which is great, go and your money helps to support them without making them public.

100% worth to see this. Sad, sobering and yet learning experience to see how this wonderful country(and many others) and its people was (and quite often still is) ruined by landmines. Despite all this you get to see some more inspiring stories of how this museum helps the kids and countless other people who suffered from landmines...

A very small personal museum with lots of interesting artefacts relating to landmines but it was very dusty and looked in need of a lick of paint.

Bill M, Manager at Cambodia Landmine Museum, responded to this review

I am sorry the Museum did not meet your expectations. We do try and keep it neat, although it is dusty in Cambodia. we have a full time 'cleaner' to sweep. We just got through repairing and replacing the display panels in the Museum. We are required by the government to keep everything behind glass or secured from the public.... More
