Overview

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.

Although it's a bit of a schlep from downtown Siem Reap, I would highly recommend visiting this museum to understand the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge that killed a quarter of the Cambodian population in the 1970s and its legacy. Millions of landmines are still...More

The term museum does not do justice to this place. The income and donations support the home for children on the same site. The museum is packed with very interesting information from 1960s onwards and a huge number of examples of ordinance cleared from minefields...More
