Visit us to learn about the wars that Cambodia endured and their aftermath, which is still reverberating through the country today. Learn how landmines and other ‘explosive remnants of war’ came to be in Cambodia through the story of our founder, Akira, as he tells of growing up during the conflict of the Khmer Rouge and the work he has done to earn him the title of CNN Hero.

Museum Directory

$5 for foreign adults.  Children under 12 and Khmer adults enter for free.

Cash is preferred over credit. In bringing cash, we ask you to bring a small change before traveling to our museum and the temples.

All days of the week: 8 AM – 5PM

 

The museum is located 25km north of Siem Reap, near Banteay Srey Temple complex in Angkor National Park. Safe to say, tuk-tuk drivers all know where to look. But for those driving themselves, please refer to our Google Maps location.

Self-guided Audio Tours:  QR codes throughout the museum can be accessed on your phone and through the Museum Wifi if necessary.

Personal Tours: Available in Khmer and English but please arrange 48 hours prior to arrival by contacting the museum at:

landminemuseum89@gmail.com

Tuk-tuks are recommended just as they are for temples, at the cost of around $20 round-trip from the city-center of Siem Reap. The ride is about 45 minutes, and the drivers usually wait for visitors to finish at the museum to take them back to town. We recommend you pay once you return to town. Download the PassApp or Grab for an even cheaper ride. 

Temple Pass used for Angkor Wat and others IS NOT necessary 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.

This cause could never have received as much attention and support if it were not for our visitors, supporters, and donors! We THANK YOU for your time and contributions. To get involved please donate today, sign up for our newsletter, or contact us for further information! Thank you! The Cambodia Landmine Museum
