A stopped by the Museum by chance, and was rewarded with an amazing tour from the Museum Manger Mr Var Inariddh. He was very friendly, informative and knowledgeable about all matters associated with mines and their deadly impact. He spoke excellent English and took the time to answer my questions. The museum has a great display of all sorts of mines and war equipment.

Its hard to see the visual impact and human damage the mines have done, but the museum is definitely worth a visit and I recommend it to give context to Cambodian history.

Very emotional to see the effects of war even 50 years on. People are still being killed by land mines. They have trained dogs and rats to try to find them. They'll show you how they search for them and remove them safely as well as where they came from.

Very interesting place to learn about Cambodia War history and mine action. It's a recent founded museum runed by a mine action fundation and they're trying to publish the place to the public. Very nice and funny guide, absolutely compromised against mines in Cambodia. Absolutely recomendable!!

Very informative and extremely interesting. A guide with little English but tried really hard to explain which we understood. The history of post events that made the hairs on my neck stand. Everything written in English. Our tuk tuk driver didn’t know of this, it’s only because I spotted the museum as we drove past. Apparently they get few visitors and it’s been open just over a year. Must see and it’s free to visit but worthwhile giving a large donation. A great way to spend over an hour. The toilets were also extremely clean which is unusual from other places visited

It was very interesting.I can’t gain such a knowledge about Landmine in Japan.
I was very shocked by watching real Landmine and listen about them.

A must see if you want to learn about how Cambodia's past effects its future. This museum has only been opened for a reasonably short time. They love to have visitors. The museum is free, but you are welcome to leave a tip. This is a great place to see and hear about the land mines in Cambodia. This is a must see so that we don't repeat the same mistakes of the past. The issue is that even though the war is over, mines keep destroying Cambodian lives. This museum is very well done, it gives you the history of a visual representation of what it was like and how many bombs were dropped and how may land mines were planted. The guides are very enthusiastic and love people coming by. If you can visit here I certainly would recommend that you do.

I visited this museum recently and can recommend it if you are temples out.. it provides historical context for the wars in Cambodia and the displays are amazing...disturbing in some ways but that is reality. Great guides.
