The Cambodia Landmine Museum offer tourists and Cambodians the chance to see (safe) landmines up close, understand how they work, and what they can do to help rid Cambodia and the world of their continuing threat.
Remaining one of the most heavily mined countries, Cambodia is still conflicting with unexploded landmines and dozens of civilians are injured or killed every year as a result of historic wars. That’s main reason why Cambodia Landmine Museum was founded to educate visitors about Cambodian history and the importance of clearing landmines.

The museum offers a chance to see safe landmines up close, to understand how they work, and what they can do to help rid Cambodia of their continuing threat.
