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.

I love a small museum, as I feel it can make more of an impact that something that needs hours to explore. This is small, but wow, does it tell a story that needs to be told. If you need a reminder of how Cambodia was treated by all the world powers over the past decade and how it still... More

This was a nice ride to this museum which shows landmines that have been deactivated and unearthed. Small museum but the individual who started it has his story posted and it is very interesting to read. This guy is inspirational in what he has done in creating a school for those who were victims of landmines. Met the couple who... More

This is a super small museum which I knew I wanted to visit on the way back from the Bantay Srei temple. We only spent about half an hour here but it gives you an insight into the effect that landmines have had on many of its victims. The museum costs $3 to enter and they support its victims. The...

This is well worth a visit if you are nearby or en-route to Banteay srei for example. Its very small & doesn't take too much time to look around but the story is important and very pertinent to Cambodia. Cost of entry is a mere $3 but you will surely want to give more in respect of the work that... More

This small museum is about 45mins-1hour Tuktuk outside Siem Reap, with just a few rooms. Visually interesting and gives a first insight into the mine situation in Cambodia. It does tell the story of one man who has spent his life de-mining the country, and his journey along the way. We combined this museum with Bantreay Srei temple which is... More

Definitely worth a visit. Had a chat to one of the American guides who gave us a very informative 15 min tour, which greatly enhanced our overall experience

It's a great story and it's a nice site for what it is. However the hour long ride on a tuk tuk and the museum no larger than a living is a let down. Again the story of the man is great but can be read about online or other sources. Check out the war museum. Much closer and has... More
