  • Fascinating to be here! You will learn a lot about how Cambodians struggled in leaving that era. To survive and live with landmines that where no to be found. The risk that they have to take. Please contribute more so that they could do more for helping people. You need to find more, to know more about this place. Feel it and Support.
  • It’s a bit far from the city. Our tourist guide was a bit reluctant to bring us there but we insisted because of the good reviews. And I’m glad that we insisted. As a human, it’s good to see, hear and read about Cambodian landmines for us to become more human. You can meet the land mine victims yourselves there. And, plus point for the very clean toilets ✨ Entrance ticket 5usd / person.
  • A great insight into the life and work of Aki Ra, one of the founders of the museum and the lasting devastation the use of landmines has caused, and still is, to Cambodian families. Sure, the artifacts on display are a collection of the types of ordnance used by the Khmer Rouge on their own countrymen and the size and types of ordnance dropped by the US during the 1960's and 70's. The real purpose of visiting is to be touched by the real stories of all those innocents killed and mamed during the conflicts but also those killed and mamed since and continue to be to this day. Aki Ra and his team from the museum not only locate, disarm, and detonate such devices (in excess of 50,000 to-date) but also take in and support young victims. Please visit if you are in the area and support them with your admission fee $5, donations and purchases. Every little helps.
  • The Cambodia Landmine Museum in Siem Reap is a must-visit for its extensive collection of landmines and other explosive remnants of war, as well as providing helpful context information. It's a sobering but essential experience that offers a unique perspective on the ongoing impact of war in Cambodia.
  • This was a great place to learn about the millions of landmines left in Cambodia after the wars of the 60-80's. It was also a good place to learn about help being given to clear land of mines and supporting the people that have been injured by these leftover, unmarked threats to life and limbs.
