Located in Kabul, Afghanistan, the OMAR Mine Museum contains a collection of 51 types of land mines out of the 53 used in Afghanistan over the years. OMAR is an acronym for the Organization for Mine Clearance and Afghan Rehabilitation. The collection includes unexploded ordnance, cluster bombs and airdrop bombs used by the War in Afghanistan.

The museum also displays a variety of other military hardware from wars fought in Afghanistan over the recent decades, including artillery, surface-to-air missiles, and a collection of Soviet military aircraft.

Dr. Shah Walie is one of the primary organizers of the museum. For security reasons, the museum is not open for casual visitors. All appointments must be made through the main OMAR office.
