    A small, intimate museum that packs an emotional punch & not only raises awareness for those tourists willing to truly SEE this country, but continues to help educate its own to facilitate further landmine removal (an estimated 6 million still remain!) as well as house & school the children maimed by landmines or orphaned because of them. Our guide, Kak Hort, is one of those children. Go. Hear his story. Support the school. Donate if you can. You won't be the same after....

    Head here for a few hours to learn about the history, art, and culture of the Khmer Empire’s Angkor period (9th – 14th century). Not only will you escape the heat and the crowds, but it’s the only place to see many of the artifacts discovered in and around the nearby Angkor archaeological sites. Some museums are a big yawn – but not this one. Modern design with well-presented exhibits and numerous informative displays in English. Loved the Gallery of 1000 Buddha!

    I wasn’t sure what to make of this place but it was a lot of fun! Kids had a blast and were excited to take pictures, which is never the case :P

    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.

    This museum gave the impression that it was not often visited (in fact, we were the only guests there, and had personal attention from our guides: different ones for each section of the small museum). As lovers of textiles, both my husband and I appreciated the beautiful/colorful examples of the various materials, and the detailed information about them, as well.

    As a nice surprise, they had a small display of handmade jewelry that had been created by some of the staff, at extremely reasonable prices that certainly no one could pass up. It was especially fun to find out that I had chosen a necklace that was made by one of our guides. Even though we did not speak the same language, he could see how much I liked my necklace, and I could see how pleased he was to be acknowledged as an artist.

    It is too bad that they don't have an official gift shop - this is a missed opportunity on their part to sell textiles to customers who would really appreciate them. Maybe if enough of us ask for it?
