State of the art national museum with audio guide. Expensive but well worth the cost in order to have the history of the Angkor region explained. Only then will the temple visits make sense. 7-8 galleries with well lit and well thought out displays.

The museum is amazing and on par with any great world museum. The history and culture etc of Cambodia very well presented. The room of 1000 Buddhas takes your breath away - I was in Nirvana. Highly recommend going before visiting the temples themselves.

I went with a tour, they gave us one hour to see both floors of exhibitions. It's air conditioned, so good for a hot rainy day. Artefacts are well maintained, some better than the real ones on site. One to 2 hours is the bare minimum for a good visit to cover all the exhibits and movies.

We went to this museum the day before visiting Angkor Wat and it was worthwhile. Unlike the Phnom Penh national museum, here the exhibits are set out in a logical order and you can get a better understanding of the different eras of Cambodian history and the artefacts of each era. There are several videos that can be played in... More

The museum has been on my must-do list for Siem Reap and I'm glad that we went as we found it really well set out, informative, very well lit and there were some truly beautiful artefacts on display. We especially enjoyed the 1,000 Buddhas room. So many wonderful pieces to admire. Take your time to watch the short videos and... More

Stop at the Angkor National Museum, before heading to Angkor Wat, to get a crash course in Cambodian history and culture first. Take the audio tour and learn all about the history, that will open you eyes to the spectacular views of Angkor Wat.

Excellent museum which provides great background information on the Kymer history, Angkor Wat and other temples. Rent the head seats to get the most out of the tour.

Don't expect a world class museum with mind blowing exhibits, be aware that a lot of artefacts have been smuggled out and what is on display is interesting
