Angkor National Museum reviews
You should visit this museum before you visit Angkor Wat. It has many artifacts. It's clean. Has friendly staff. It has a gift shop. more »
As a history lover this was one place I would love to revisit. So many historical sculptures and artifacts and that too in such good condition. Really its like you enter the 1000 year old... more »
Interesting museum with many expedition halls. A great place to find out more of the areas history. I went here after the trips to many temples, and I found this was a great way to fill in the gaps with information about the major temple sites. Entrance fee was around $12 Recommended.
This museum definitely impressed me. There is a ton of information about the religious, political and architectural history of Cambodia. I wasn't expecting it to be so large with so many exhibits. I suggest getting the audio guide. We didn't and we felt like we missed out on a lot of good information. There are some information plaques in English but no enough to make up for no guide. Also, don't go in hungry. I went in on a light breakfast not anticipating how much there was to see and ended up going too quickly at the end with the anticipation of lunch. Also there is no photography allowed, which is a huge bummer because there are so many beautiful things.
