  • To buy a ticket at the entrance, went inside and immediately put earphones. Has put Japan's license to rent the earphones put the ID in the box. Such important identification to check in this way so there is no choice. And to coursejet! On this day the second destination was the killing fields. Is just a pile of bones, piles of mine here. This place looks so peaceful so filled with land mines had weapons other than mine too... I've had. The tour itself takes in about 15 minutes. Outside the restroom is surprisingly clean and Nice. Tickets are $ 5 per person purchased in cash. Visit, 1/2/2018

  • I went to the Mine Museum. It is quite far away from the city of Siem Reap. I don't know and really try to present now remains a dangerous relic of the past. I mean aquilar's financial performance, was surprised with the greatness of action. Could not borrow as collateral did not have identification or something (driving licence, Angkor Wat ticket, etc.) during the absence of knowledge is able to borrow guiding receiver when we went, but go ahead and rent a receiver, so. If I think I should go have something of a certificate, was taken. Will be screened in DVD (a show in Japan in the past). You can see if you ask near the kiosk vendors.

  • The museum is not only about land mines but the man who set up the museum. How he laid landlines as a soldier then set about clearing them. It is a perfect balance for a museum. There is an audio tour...  more »

  • This man is admirable, after setting up so many mines which destroyed the landscape, he realized that he was being harmful to his people. he set himself a mission to help undo what he had created. if you visit Cambodia, the landmine museum is a must. it is sad to see that they are still affected to these days, but it presents a hopefulness to the situation because through his work, he has been able to promote knowledge and training for others to deactivate mines.
  • This museum is well worth the drive out of the city. It is small, but very moving and informative. Your $5 admission and any money spent in the gift shop go to support the museum, as well as the dozens of orphan children that live there. I recommend taking the (free) audio guide and following the numbers through in order (0-22). Also may be worth visiting Banteay Srei temple as well while you are in the area, if you have a valid temple pass. Support a good cause and visit this museum!
  • Very interesting self-guided tour with audio commentary in recorded English (other languages also available).
  • Small museum, but wonderful museum. Definitely go if you're in Siem Reap.
  • Small but worth visiting. Aki Ra (museum owner) story is very moving and what he does is awesome
