Aki Ra's Landmine Museum

Aki Ra's Landmine Museum

A jarring counterpoint to the ancient Khmer glories on display at Angkor Wat are the more recent horrors of Cambodia's political and social upheavals. This museum, founded by Aki Ra, a former Khmer Rouge child soldier, provides a clear and compelling account of this troubled time, and the appalling legacy of landmines and unexploded ordinance that still blights the lives of the Cambodian people's lives today. Despite ongoing effort to find and defuse these sleeping weapons, it is estimated that less than half have been cleared. Aki Ra himself deactivated over 50,000 of them, many on his own initiative. The museum contains hundreds of these landmines, and many other weapons too.
