I wend to the Angkor National Museum after 2 days of temple visits at Angkor Wat. It was still a good experience as it filled in gaps for me and answered a lot of questions I had about the temples. However I highly recommend travelers to visit the museum PRIOR to Angkor Wat, as it will give you information about... More

At first I thought I would be bored, but then I quickly realized how much I enjoyed visiting the Museum in between our tours. It helped explain the history and stories behind the temples, and such. We found it to be a nice relaxing place.

This is an excellent Museum which is a great primer to understanding Angkor ruins. It has video teaching moments in many languages and progresses in a path of understanding the statues and the history of Siem Reap Provence.

Great introduction to the Khmer culture & regime, which may be really helpful before you do the Angkor Wat thing. The audio guide is a really helpful tool, too. A bit disappointed with the video of Angkor Wat itself- it's multiple projectors didn't quite line up, which is disconcerting & the audio soundtrack quality is really poor. But well worth... More

We spent about 90 mins here before the kids wanted to move on. The displays were really good and the information really interesting, although possibly a bit repetitive with lots of the same types of displays makes engaging the kids tougher. Still worth the visit though. I think visiting this museum before visiting the actual sites was a good order.

It is well worth visiting the museum before you visit any of the temples as it gives you a good insight into Buddhism and the Khmer people. On a negative note, after the first couple of galleries it became quite repetitive and drawn out, seeing the same things over and over. Due to this I don't think it is worth... More

A real treasure trove of info on ancient Khmer history. Only 12$ entry and 5$ for headset. To be honest there is a lot of written info on both floors so the headset is only required if you don't like reading. Plus there are around 6 video presentations in the various galleries so you will not be short on info.... More

Great starting point to learn about the Khmer dynasty history - in particular about the different templ(s). Best to take the audi tour.

An introduction to Cambodia, its history, religions, kings, culture, and everything you might want to know. Entrance ticket is priced at 12 USD. We arrived on our first day and visited this right away. Great exhibits and a comprehensive display of statues, models, videos, and many artifacts.

We were directed to get tickets at a travel agency by a friendly tuktuk driver. The tickets did work and were the same price of $12 but we could have bought them at the museum. The staff insisted that I store my handbag (no charge) so I had to transfer what I thought I would need out but I was... More
