Landmine Museum

Perhaps no facility anywhere in Cambodia epitomizes better the importance of never forgetting history, no matter how harrowing, than the country’s incredible Landmine Museum, Located north of Siem Reap, this one-of-a-kind historical exhibit was founded in 1997 by Aki Ra, a former Khmer Rouge child soldier. The Cambodia Landmine Museum tells the story of the Ra’s efforts to clear the countryside of the unexploded weapons that killed and maimed the population for decades. Expansive displays of rare machinery and documentary information provide fascinating insights into Cambodia’s history with this most insidious form of weaponry. This powerful exhibit provides educational information regarding continued efforts to remove any remaining landmines from Cambodia forever.

  • Discover firsthand the efforts of reducing the number of landmines in Cambodia at the mock minefield at Siem Reap’s Landmine Museum, which provides visitors the challenge of locating unexploded mines.
  • Examine defused mines, as well as guns, mortars, and other relics from the Khmer Rouge time, on display at the Landmine Museum.
