A highlight of our trip to Siem Reap was the trip to the Landmine Museum. As a keen student of history/politics, I was disturbed by how little I knew of the savagery of the Khmer Rouge social experiment, and even less of the years of "civil war" that followed. You don't hear about it day to day here, at all, to the huge credit of the Camdodians - and there is no family it would not have touched. The museum serves the history and the human cost in a very tangible way. The trip there and back (the museum is 45 mins outta town) is worth it (especially on a tuk tuk) for its sheer beauty & insight into Cambodian village life. Do not hesitate - DO IT!! You owe it to yourself and your Cambodian hosts.

This Museum lies a few kilometres outside the city, on the way to Banteay Srey. If you are not i na hurry, you cazn easily spend half an hour or so here o nthe way back. On July 2014, ticket price was 3 USD, they were going to raise it to 5USD. The place was setup by an ex soldier and current deminer. They carry out demining all over the country. The museum contains hundreds of mines, rockets, shells etc along with lots of information about the evils of landmines. They also run a shelter for victims of landmines. The entry fee goes towards running this place. There is also a small shop where you can buy handicrafts made from metals from the mines and rockets. These are made by the victims who live in the shelter, so buying some will help them.

We stopped here one afternoon while touring the temples and really enjoyed speaking with Bill. We learned so much about the history of conflicts in Cambodia and the terrible, terrible effects of the landmines that still litter the country. This place is worth a stop, for sure. The museum itself is not in great shape, but the folks who work here are really friendly and informative. Worth seeing!

A small set up a little out of the way reasonably priced entree fees. The displays are interesting though a little depressing when it hits home that it is all so very very very real. I felt humbled and privileged to have lived a life relatively free of the impact of war. Good work by Aki ri
