The museum is neither a big nor fancy establishment, but this place is very informative and tells us about an important and dark past for Cambodians. The write-ups of the place, found in clear plastic folders available for tourists, make it easy for you to pick it up and walk around the different rooms by yourself. The museum is very... More

Great to see someone trying to make good from something so terrible. Interesting to learn the history of land mines in Cambodia. Well worth supporting.

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.

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
