I'd put this place as one of the must see places in Siem reap, if you need a break from the temples, or are at all interested in the local history (as well as present day issues) then this place needs to be visited. Entry is $5 and this money is not only used for the museum's upkeep but also... More

After two days of visiting temples, we wanted to see something different so we decided to go to the Landmine Museum. The museum is not so big, but very interesting to understand Cambodia's history and the impact of those awful weapons had and still have. In addition, it is run by an NGO so all the money (ticket is 5€)... More

An emotional subject handled very tastefully. It was very informative. About 30 children who are either injured or who are orphaned because of landmines live there. The entrance fee is US$5. There is a guide certain days but if not there is a written guide you can take round with you. Easily accessible by Tuk Tuk.Well worth visiting.

Visited the museum in the afternoon from Siem Reep. This is a small, private museum but it has great impact. It hammers home the tragedy of war and the price of a Cambodian people have suffered. What I remember most are the small handmade crutches for small children who lost limbs because of mines. Absolutely amazing.I think everyone should visit... More

The guide spoke quietly and passionately about his own experiences. The exhibits are intelligently presented and forensic in detail. Anyone interested in human rights or the mental health of nations and survivors should spend time here.

On our way out of Banteay Srei, my friend and I dropped by this museum. It's informative and self-explanatory. They don't let you in on the orphanage center which is good, so you have four rooms to go around in this museum. A good 30-minute side trip for us!

The best part about this museum was the guide, Bill (?), who gave us a ton of information on the history of the warring in Cambodia, landmines in Cambodia and worldwide, and everything the museum and its founder, Aki Ra, has done and is still doing to help remove the mines in Cambodia and provide education to landmine victims and...

The museum is a good track out of the centre of siem reap, but it's a pretty nice journey out past all the temples and country side. It's a small and not well funded museum, not what you'd expect from the west, however this makes no difference at all. We were lucky to be shown around by an American man... More
