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 Cambodia landmine museum follows Cambodia's history after Pol Pot and how it left 5,000,000 landmines left buried in Cambodia. 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.

For the museum lovers out there this is a must visit. We were pulled along with another couple on our tour and we were so glad that we went. It is very interesting and lots of fantastic artifacts to look at.

Take a temple time-out and head over to the Landmine Museum and Children's Relief Centre to learn more about Cambodia's bloody and war torn past. The museum and centre are 30 mins from Siem Reap and in a couple of hours you will learn about the impact and ongoing work to clear landmines and other unexploded ordnance, not just in... More

The museum is located quite a ways outside of Siem Reap (further than the temples), but it's a nice truk tuk ride. Lots of beautiful scenery along the way and I feel like I got more of an idea of what Cambodian life is like by seeing people outside of Siem Reap/Pub Street/Angkor Temples. The museum itself is a series... More

The museum is an informative place with examples of the destruction that land mines cause. This place helps to put a perspective on how this weapon is indiscriminate in its choice of victims. The school that is onsite and housing the children also could use donations if you are planning on going. The have a wish list, although I don't... More
