If you have an interest in what is going on in Cambodia, this is yet another important glimpse below the surface (and may I also recommend the book 'Cambodia's Curse'). On top of the many other problems faced by these wonderful, if unfortunate people, is the millions of landmines and unexploded ordinance strewn across the country (you will see the... More

We visited this museum after going to Banteay Srey (about 15 minutes distance with the car). The ticket was $3. It was very informative and touching.

We had already visited the Killing Fields and the War Museum when we went to the Landmine Museum. Quite an interesting place. The American guide Bill fields questions about any and everything. Invaluable.

I'm usually n ot one to spend lots of time at these kind of museums, but this was worth every minute. It's small outdoor museum, founded by Aka Rai and run by war survivors. Aka Rai was a child soldier and knows the insight of the terrible war in Cambodia before and during Pol Pot's reign, having 'finished off' about... More

The Landmine Museum is a must-see for anyone who wants to understand what happened to the Cambodian people in the past and how it influences what is happening now. You can spend an hour or several hours depending on how much detail you want to read about the nature of the land mines. The museum focuses on the work of... More

The museum focuses on one man who deactivated 50,000 landmines by hand and set up an orphanage for landmine victims. Make sure to pick up a packet in your language before walking around, it's very easy to follow and has... More

My driver and tour guide Rin Ra, who is self employed and has a facebook page "Cambodia in Comfort", took me here which is also a must see. There is a very wide display of military planes, guns, tanks and is a reminder of the past.

There is not much to the museum, but the story of the man who started it is just amazing, heart-breaking, heart-warming, and inspirational.
