  • We stopped off here on our way to the airport, and so glad we did. Founded by a child soldier during the Khmer Rouge regime and now working as a de-miner. The good work doesn’t stop there, the museum ...  more »
  • Listed in Lonely Planet to see and visit. From the city about an hour on a bike. Learn the history of Cambodia, including the Japanese volunteers explained in detail, so for now. Would you have time take a look at.

  • Definitely worth the trip. The museum is about 25km outside of Siem Reap. Entry is $5 US. The museum supports de-mining efforts and has an on-site centre to care for affected children. (Not open to th...  more »

  • Well worth a visit. So much history there and great works being done. A bit on the small side for such an important museum but all the information is there. Picture shows where money goes and contribution made by MY church to assist education in village schools.
  • A must stop to see one mans effort to correct the evil of the land mine. His story unbelievable is one of caring for his country and trying to correct the wrongs done. What one person has done is fantastic. What needs to be done is far from done. The mines still injure people to this day. Makes you mad inside that humans can treat each other this way.
  • Very interesting and informative. Great job on the translations and audio guides. Helps put in perspective how much Cambodia was affected by the wars, and the power is person can do to help a country. Wish it wasn't so far away and wish there was a bit more to see, but still very good and densely packed even in its small size. The audio guide is pretty much the same as the descriptions. But it's free so that's fine.
  • A reasonable entrance fee, detailed audio guide, and good cause. What more could you want? The staff are paid livable wages, and your contribution helps pay for the school/orphanage behind the museum as well as minesweeping missions. Attending here really opened my eyes to the struggles people still go through, even after nearly 40 years since the civil wars. A must-see if you have the option.
  • A very small museum but worth the trip out to visit. The work that has been done by the team is inspiring and there is still seemingly plenty to do. Next door is an orphanage created by the founders that houses 20+ kids. An added bonus to the visit was the journey through the Cambodian countryside to get there.
