The Cambodia Landmine Museum is a not-for-profit organisation established in 1997 by ex-child soldier Aki Ra.

After years of fighting, he returned to the villages in which he planted thousands of mines and began removing them, by hand, and defusing them with homemade tools. While working to make his country safe, Aki Ra saw many children wounded by landmines and living desperately poor lives. He brought them to his home, where he and his wife raised them as their own, alongside their own children. Originally all the children at the facility were landmine victims. Today the facility cares for children who suffer from a variety of physical, emotional, and family difficulties.

This museum aims to tell the story of landmines in Cambodia and to inspire people to make a difference.

The centre is open daily from 7.30am – 5.30pm. Entrance is $3 USD for adults.

Note: A visit to the Landmine Museum can be combined with a trip to Banteay Srei, Kbal Spean, or Kulen Mountain. The Museum is approximately 25 km from Siem Reap.
