Overview

The Landmine Museum was founded by ex-child soldier Aki Ra as a way to tell the world about the horrors landmines had infilcted on his native Cambodia. He used the proceed to clear landmines wherever he could find them. In the process of clearing small, remote villages, he began bringing home wounded and orphaned children that he and his wife raised as their own, along side their own children. Today the Museum not only tells Aki Ra's unique history and the history of landmines in Cambodia, but it is also home to over two dozen abandoned, orphaned or destitute children. All are cared for, housed, fed, educated and given a future they would otherwise never have had.

I was very ambivalent about visiting this place; the name is off-putting for a start. There are landmines to be seen, but this is a fraction of the story. The real background is of amazing self-help; faced with a countryside littered with literally millions of...More

I feel slightly awkward reviewing this place on trip advisor, as it isn’t really an ‘attraction’ as such. It’s essentially the front face of a charity who clear land mines in the country, and also raise money to help disadvantaged local children. By the ticket...More

12-14 kilometers but its on the way to the Temple "PreRup" The time will depend on whether you are on a Tuk Tuk or in a car.
