Educating for a Landmine-Free World.
About the Museum
We strive to educate our visitors of the importance of clearing landmines in Cambodia. With potentially millions still in the ground, landmines have immensely impacted the history and culture of this amazing society. We tell the story through Aki Ra’s life, the Khmer man who disarmed the majority of the landmines we have on display, alone.
The Landmine Museum is open from 7:30 – 17:30 every day of the year.
Entry fee: $5 for adult, free for children under 12, free for Cambodian citizens.
- To get here, you can grab a tuk-tuk for a cost of around $20 round-trip from the center of Siem Reap. The ride is about 30 minutes, and the drivers usually wait for visitors to finish at the museum to take them back to town. Pay once you return to town. Download the PassApp Taxi App for an even cheaper ride.
- No Temple Pass is needed to visit the museum.
Landmines in Cambodia
Cambodia remains one of the most heavily mined countries in the world as a result of decades of conflict, including a civil war, the brutal Khmer Rouge regime and genocide, American bombings, and Vietnamese occupation.
Dozens of civilians are still injured or killed every year by landmines and other unexploded ordnance that have been left over from all the fighting. Landmines and UXOs are found in backyards, in the rice fields where people work, and on the roads where children walk to school. Millions of the country’s landmines have now been cleared, but there is still a lot of work to be done; it is estimated Cambodia will not be entirely free of landmines for several decades to come.
