This is a very small museum, quite far from Siem Reap Center but it is well worth visiting. This place will make you realize that the war is nothing like a movie where some hero single handedly ends it and nobody is harmed. It will make you realize the war is cruel, dirty, unecessary and full of pain and suffering both for civilians and soldiers. This visit will also help you understand Cambodian history. It is horryfying what those people went through during the war. Tip: if you get there by tuk tuk or riksha ask your driver to wait for you. We foolishly didn't and we had great trouble to find someone to take us back to Siem Reap. PassAp drivers were not available at all in that area. Obviously, tip the driver!

Due to the work of Aki Ra, a former member of the Khmer Rouge who had placed thousands of these mines himself...this museum over time became an important place to visit in order to learn his story. After the fall of the KR...he used his knowledge to help heal the country by working with the UN as a demining specialist. That is only the beginning of his story. It's too long to detail here but I would implore you to do your own research on this amazing man and what he accomplished after the war.

This is a great story of a man's tenacity to do some good for his homeland of Cambodia. There are many, many 100s of examples of mines and many stories to tell about the removal of mines and other ordinances throughout Cambodia. It is a self guided museum.

I stopped by this museum in between touring temples in the area. The entry price was only $5, which included an audio guide to the museum. It was amazing to learn about Cambodia's tragic recent history involving landmines, the U.S. Bombing and unexploded ordinances, the landmines placed by the Khmer Rouge, etc. Also inspiring to read the story of the former child soldier who used to place bombs who now removes them and created this museum. There was a huge collection of the various mines and ordinances all over Cambodia, what countries manufacture them, and how devices are removed. Behind the museum there is an area where Cambodian children injured in landmine explosions and other children live. On a side note, the green frogs in the pond in front of the central mine exhibit were absoutely massive! I highly recommend a stop at this museum to learn about this tragic chapter in Cambodian history, and what is being done to reclaim the land from these mines 40 years later.

In February 2020, we visited the landmine museum, which is located about 25 km north of Siem Reap. The entry fee is 5 US$ for an adult. The museum is affiliated with humanitarian NGO projects (rural school village program, farm project, relief center, and Cambodian self-help demining). As the museum was on our way to the Banteay Srey temple, our tour guide recommended that we stop for a visit, and we are very glad that we did. The museum is not huge, but we spent there more than 1 hour because we found it extremely interesting. In one room, there was a film screening of about 10 min, which featured Aki Ra, the founder of the museum who disarmed the majority of the landmines on display. For the other rooms, we used the audio guide.  We would definitely recommend a visit to this extraordinarily fascinating museum to anyone who is interested in Cambodian history, particularly in learning about landmines and the atrocities they have been causing. Truly a moving experience.
