    Although far from the city centre, the journey to the Landmine Museum is worth it (a good occasion to see the surrouding countryside landscapes!). We met Mr Ak Ira, the founder of the museum and charity. Meeting him in person was a true honour and hearing his story was so important to truly understand what happened in Cambodia. It is also very difficult to hear as it is such a heartbreaking story. What Mr Ak Ira is doing for his country is so valuable. It is important to support this museum and the immense work they are doing to make Cambodia mine-free one day.

    What is there not to like about this wonderful museum!
    The displays are excellent and the audio tapes explain clearly about some of the artefacts in each area.
    We wish we had gone here first before we spent a week visiting temples.
    The building itself lends itself beautifully to the displays and we spent an enjoyable 4 hours looking around.

    It’s good but it’s a little bit old. Some paintings change color. Light level a little bit low that made some paintings not “3D-ish”. However, it’s kind of never-seen before. Great art. Excellent light show. Recommended.

    What an interesting museum. Although some distance from the centre of Siem Reap it is well worth a visit . ( $4 for a tuk tuk )
    All staff were so friendly, helpful and professional. The gentleman who took us around the exhibits was very knowledgeable and explained clearly about the design and manufacture of the textiles on display.,
    The security man at the gate was helpful in calling us a tuk tuk for our return journey.
    And the textile bracelets for sale were reasonably priced.
    The display itself is well laid out and documented in English. The fabrics from Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Myanmar and India were intricate in design and showed the differences in design from each region.

    A stopped by the Museum by chance, and was rewarded with an amazing tour from the Museum Manger Mr Var Inariddh. He was very friendly, informative and knowledgeable about all matters associated with mines and their deadly impact. He spoke excellent English and took the time to answer my questions. The museum has a great display of all sorts of mines and war equipment.

    Its hard to see the visual impact and human damage the mines have done, but the museum is definitely worth a visit and I recommend it to give context to Cambodian history.
