About
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.

My wife and I rented a motor bike in order to get there. It was $5.00 per person entrance fee per person (well worth the cost). Very educational experience where you can learn more about a very dark period in Cambodia's history and how it continues to be impacted by landmines today.

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 museum highlights the continuing problem of the millions of landmines which are slowly being cleared in Cambodia. Whilst some of the exhibits are simple or dated, the displays are very effective in reflecting the massive scale of the problem. The centre supports two charities, one for victims of landmines and another which is slowly clearing the remaining munitions.

It’s worth making the effort to see the landmine museum in Siem Reap. It gives you an idea of the the types of landmines and how many were laid. Our guide at the museum had lost his leg as a result of a landmine when he was a child.

This is a small museum but has so much information about the past and present situation in Cambodia. We were privileged to have a tour from one of those impacted by the atrocities of the laying of landmines - sorry not to have caught your name but thank you for sharing your story with us and informing us about the history and differences between devices and their origins. You cannot visit the area without visiting this museum.

I first visited this museum out of a sense of duty to honour the tragic events of the area’s recent past. But this little museum is a real life testament to the resilience of the human spirit. Its also an example of how present day Cambodians are building a future that goes beyond its glorious ancient temples, the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge, and the hordes of tourists on Pub street. It’s a must visit.

If you are visiting Cambodia, this museum is a must stop! Got a tour from Hak Hort, who is a landmine victim and also clears land mines throughout Cambodia. There was no charge for the tour, he just asked for a donation. It really put life in Cambodia and the problems with land mines into perspective. Do not skip over this impactful museum that really does a lot of good for the people of Cambodia!

Located a long the way to Banteaysrey temple, it's a nice spot to visit. The owner, who was a child solider tell a good story of his work. Worth a try if you travel a long this road.

Keep up the great work.

A small but important museum. I think every American who visits Cambodia should take some time out of their trip to learn the full impact of America’s secret and illegal bombing campaign of Cambodia. Proceeds go towards clearing the still 3 million land mines in the country.
