Cambodia Land Mine Museum

Published 05/26/2016

Fodor's Review

Be sure to visit this museum, established by Akira, a former child soldier who fought for the Khmer Rouge, the Vietnamese, and the Cambodian Army. Now he dedicates his life to removing the land mines he and thousands of others laid across Cambodia. His museum is a must-see, a sociopolitical eye-opener that portrays a different picture of Cambodia from the glorious temples and five-star hotels. Any tuk-tuk or taxi driver can find the museum. When in the Old Market area, visit the Akira Mine Action Gallery for more information on land mines and ways to help land-mine victims go to college. As it is a decent distance from Siem Reap, it's best to combine this with a visit to the Banteay Srey Temple complex.
