Actually I didn’t know that the museum exists because I stopped for the huge wedding next door. Then I realized the museum and I went straight inside. You should support them because this bad history is still very present in the Cambodian life.

Amazing place to visit! I went there by bicycle from Siem Reap (was like 28 km drive). Strongly suggest to use tuk-tuk, if you are not very fit, since sun and heat might drain all of your energy before you even arrive. Museum has not only a lot of different mines, weapons,...More

Okay, this place is really disorganized? They have a free audio guide which is an AWESOME idea. I really love that idea. The narrator on the guide is obviously American and he speaks clearly. There could have been some more useful information though. And they...More

Check the website directly but it doesn't look like it will. You could go to the war museum in siem reap if you wanted.

Hi They have audio sets in English which are good to listen to as you walk through. All the exhibits have English signage and are very informative.

Overwhelmed by temple choices - help! (6 Replies)
Hi guys, I am arriving in Siem Reap in about a fortnight and will be there for 4 full days of sightseeing. I have been travelling for about three months in the region and before I left home in September I thought I'd done my research well and knew which temples I wanted to see, etc. But I was wrong! I want to see so many things in such a little time, and I'm not sure how much time to allow for each place, or when it is the best time to go. Can I get some help from people who are...More

Hi Callintha, I would have to say that you have a very short list of temples for 4 days in siem reap. I am going to guess that you are capable of seeing all those sights you mentioned and more if you get a three day pass. It all depends on the amount of time you are going to spend at each temple. A lot of people get "templed out" by the 2nd or 3rd day. You can combine Banteay Srei and the Landmine museum as they are on the same road in one morning with room for more temples (or re-visit...More

You can easily do that in a day, but make an early start if by tuk-tuk. All are very much worth seeing. I'd head to the war museum first as it is outside and gets quite hot in the daytime. After that head to the National Museum. The place is massive so expect to spend a couple hours there if you're into Asian art. (some breeze through it in an hour). Akira's Landmine Museum is out of town but it will be a nice ride. As the landmine museum website mentions, you can donate by Paypal, or...More

Landmine Museum in Siem Reap town (3 Replies)
Hi, I know that there is a Cambodia Landmine Museum near Banteay Srei. I also spotted another one, just called "Land mines Museum" on Google Map, near the river in Siem Reap town. I couldn't find any info on it. Is it a mistake? If it's not, is it worth a visit, can provide some info? tks.

The Landmine Museum has moved such a long time ago to somewhere close to Banteay Srey temple.
