  • 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 »

  • It’s worth a visit as you complete all of your temple tours. Real life stories of disarming mines and the people who have helped and been harmed from the thousands of mines in Cambodia. It also shows you these mines and the difficult process it is to disarm them and the evolution of this process to what it is today which is detailed and takes the necessary precautions.
  • If you are going to Banteay Srei I strongly urge you to drop by and support this amazing project. The team over there are doing such a wonderful job and deserve any support they can get. Keep up the brilliant work!
  • Talk to the people who work at the Museum. They have a lot of great info not on the pamphlets. We spoke with a Vietnam vet who was there for almost an hour.
  • I had a fantastic experience here. The museum is very eye opening to the conditions that still remain in Cambodia. The many artifacts display the history of war in Cambodia and the difference Aki Ra makes.
  • I was on a hired motorbike and found the museum really hard to find even with Google Maps, and a long way out of Siem Reap, but I enjoyed the drive and the landscape and getting lost. The museum is very much a shrine to it's founder and the great work done. It is definitely harrowing to see the lasting affects of unexploded ordinance on Cambodian people and the great international effort to deactivate the millions of land mines. It seemed to me the true heroes are the Cambodians In terms of display, the exhibition is a bit tired and complacent. It needs a refresh. But please don't let that put you off going there, it's all part of the horror of what Cambodia (and external forces) did to itself. This is a strong people and a strong nation still in recovery.
