The War Remnant Museum is a museum and a center that provides education/training and support for dozens of at-risk people and landmine survivors. The War Remnant Museum was created so that it might serve as a place of healing for bodies, hearts and minds. We believe that love, support and education and teaching new skills will help secure a better opportunity in life.

Small museum but filled with insightful pictures and items conserved from the war period. Descriptive information shows you what happened in the past and how people affected are now. Good to spend a couple of hours
