Overview
More
The Landmine Museum was founded by ex-child soldier Aki Ra as a way to tell the world about the horrors landmines had infilcted on his native Cambodia. He used the proceed to clear landmines wherever he could find them. In the process of clearing small, remote villages, he began bringing home wounded and orphaned children that he and his wife raised as their own, along side their own children. Today the Museum not only tells Aki Ra's unique history and the history of landmines in Cambodia, but it is also home to over two dozen abandoned, orphaned or destitute children. All are cared for, housed, fed, educated and given a future they would otherwise never have had.

We were much moved by the story of Aki Ra and his work to de-mine Cambodia, raise some of the orphans of mines and ones with damaged bodies. It atones for his previous work setting mines for the Khmer Rouge during the 1975-79 civil war....More

Promotes education and awareness about land mines. Begun by astonishing Mr. Aki Ra it’s a very personal story about his life but reiterates the shocking devastation of the global arms trade. It is quite a ‘amateur’ museum but that’s part of the attraction. Remember to...More

A visit here is many things - informative, interesting, educational and heartbreakingly sad, but most importantly it is about hope, courage, success and the inspiring story of an amazing man determined to make a difference. A true inspiration.

This was a moving experience. What a mission these people have undertaken--removing land mines and supporting disabled children. I learned so much about the Civil War in Cambodia, and the mission of this incredible organization.

This relatively small, private museum is run by a foundation set up to assist communities with clearing of landmines. The driving force behind the museum and foundation began by laying mines and later has made a career of undoing the mines. It is a sobering...More
