Experience the hard-hitting Landmine Museum

Unlike other grand museums in the country, this one is a humble yet stirring affair. Setup by local deminer Aki Ra, the Landmine Museum, located in a country-side shack, is a brave attempt to educate locals as well as foreigners about the use, effects, and statistics of landmines and other unexploded ordinance in Cambodia.

Offering a firsthand account of the political and social upheavals in the country during its war-time years, the guides in the museum are teenagers maimed or orphaned by landmines who live on site.
