Cambodia Land Mine
Who we are
I want to make my country safe for my people
The Cambodia Landmine Museum was opened in 1999 to promote mine awareness
and education for both tourists and Cambodian people. Landmines will
likely be a problem in Cambodia for many years to come. Through
awareness, safety, and prevention, we strive to protect Cambodian
communities from further suffering and devastation.
A new and bigger museum, scheduled for opening in 2007, will be renamed
the Cambodia Landmine Museum, Prevention and Rehabilitation Centre, a
Canadian-founded NGO working to expand Aki Ra's humanitarian mandate and
vision for a safe and prosperous Cambodia. It is supported by UNESCO,
the Canadian Government, and Her Excellency Donica Pottie Canadian
Ambassador to Cambodia.
What we do
Our activities include providing education and training to rural people
about landmine safety, clearing mines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) from
various provinces in Cambodia, and training soldiers to deactivate and
clear landmines and UXO from the countryside. We also provide livelihood
support for soldiers working in de-mining and their families, and a home
and school at the Museum for child survivors of landmines. Through all
our activities, we work to ensure that Cambodia will one day become free
of landmines and UXO.
To help support our activities, we have established a not-for-profit
relief fund which enabled us to build the new facility, which will
continue to house exhibits of landmines and unexploded ordinance and
offer on-site educational programming. It will also employ educators to
travel to mined communities to teach adults and children about landmine
safety. The museum will provide a school and a newer, larger dormitory
for child landmine survivors, and prosthetic limb rehabilitation for
What you can experience

For the more interested visitor, you can watch (and buy) a short DVD

We display a large collection of guns, rifles, rocket launchers,
pistols, mortars, grenades, CS gas canisters, bombs, bullets and a 225kg
bomb from a US warplane, all recovered from Cambodia countryside.
