Overview
More
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.

Even if you know all about it, go and have a look and stick a few dollars in the box. Its a very worth cause. They do some great work for this amazing country.

I loved and feared what was on display. We are very wrapped up in cotton wool and usually don´t get to see the quantity of killing tools that others have created and used on each other, just disgustingly educational and touching. We saw this by...More

This place is quite a distance from Siem Reap, but it was worth the journey by tuk tuk; just negotiate a good price. The museum is very interesting and I like the fact that they don’t allow tourists to see the children who live there...More

Hi They have audio sets in English which are good to listen to as you walk through. All the exhibits have English signage and are very informative.
