I was fortunate to have first visited the museum in 2000 and again in 2019. Its since moved to its new location and has well written displays with some sobering charts showing the extent of land mine deadliness.
Their are technical descriptions with cut-away pictures...More
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.
We went with our three children ages 8, 11, 15. This was about an hour tuk tuk ride (there was some road construction) but so worth it. A car would have been faster but we like the view and experience from a tuk tuk. The...More
This museum tells the sad story of a man who dedicated his life to ridding Cambodia of landmines. This museum talks about his NGO, other NGO's helping, a huge display and explanation of landmines he's diffused, and stories of children he has helped. He also...More
I read several reviews here before visiting today and think that a reviewer or two were too tough. I thought the museum did an excellent job in communicating the problem and offering solutions. They were not professional but that’s what I found refreshing. This guy...More
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
Great museum. An hour is plenty to see all exhibits. Exhibits are informative and overall group plan is inspiring. Great initiative and dedicate people with a cause. Very much worth supporting. Lots of information about the war history of Cambodia and the efforts going on...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

I am sorry you found the museum so wanting.
We are working with available resources to make the museum better. We now availability to the 'net and we will be using that to replace the audio guide, which has been in place for a few...More
Love the way the tour is revolved around Akira's past experience, starting as a child soldier for the Khmer Rouge regime, in which builds up perfectly for his story and actions behind his mission to clean up landmines for the betterment of his nation, and...More
This small museum contains information about a very important part of Cambodian history. It is run by a non profit that seeks to rid Cambodia of land mines. We were spending the afternoon on our own. We were advised to stop at this museum by...More
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.
