What travelers say:

I totally agree to go to such a place to learn about the history of a country, no matter how challenging it is. The exhibition is outside the city, not very far by car, and it only takes 30-60 minutes to visit the entire exhibition. The main feature is the mine display area. There are 6 rooms distributed in the central area. Each room has displays, information and stories about the country’s history. The founder of the museum devoted his life to discovering and removing landmines and bombs left over from many wars. I did not realize the impact of the Vietnam conflict on Cambodia before. The tour guides are all volunteers (you can choose voluntarily). Our tour guide lost his leg when playing near home 20 years ago. The ticket is $5, but you have to know that this is a great business. You will indeed see a lot of disabled people in and around the town. This place will let you understand what you can't understand in the town.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Cambodian Landmine Museum was established in 1997 by a local demining expert, AkiRa. The museum tells people about the history of landmines. Aki Ra saw the shocking blood in the process of demining, as well as the killing of his fellow citizens, so he decided to open a mine museum with his own funds, hoping that more people could learn about war and the harm caused by mines. There are multiple cannons at the entrance of the Mine Museum, as well as a mine pavilion. The small pavilion is full of mines of different sizes and styles. Mine art made from landmines is also displayed in the museum. In addition to mines, the museum also displays helmets, mortars, guns, and various weapons from the Civil War.
