Introduction

Aki Ra, a former Child Soldier for the Khmer Rouge, founded the Cambodia Landmine Musem in 1997. He set up the musem in his home and began by displaying his own collection of decommissioned mines, bombs and other explosive remnants of war that he himself had cleared. He charged visitors $1 to see his collection and the money he raised went towards educating and supporting children affected by landmines. The museum also contains information on the destructive capabilities of the UXO and is part of the Cambodian Land Mine Relief Fund, which helps people affected by mines.
