This museum gives a full and helpful explanation of the Khmer empire and its kings throughout time, identifying when various temples were built and why. It's well laid-out and very informative. Well worth a visit before going to the temples.

This was well worth the money we paid, about $12. It is huge and well laid out with lots of short videos to sit down and rest your feet as you walk. Most are in several languages and you work the videos yourself. Plan on longer than you thought, we spent about 4 hours and could have spent a bit... More

The museum really explained very well the significance of the carvings and depictions and statues of the Hindu Gods and Buddha. Very informative. I wish Id gone here before going to the temples.

This is an excellent stop that shows the history of Angkor Wat and Buddhism. Every little detail is displayed here. Very involved with this religion. I give 3 stars only because it is so involved to the average person.

Well designed and gives an excellent overview of the culture, history and religion of Cambodia. Fantastic to do before or after Angor Wat as it helps to explain the structure and history of this beautiful place. Some beautiful ancient art housed in this complex that is well displayed. The flow of material presented is well depicted and plentiful. 2 hours... More

This museum was a total disappointment. The first room shows a video about the museum, not about the Angkor temples, so you can just skip this commercial. The second room of a thousand Buddhas is literally just that (this is the thing you need after travelling in SE-Asia, more Buddhas!) Again, almost no link to the Ankor temples. From here... More

As the name......its summarised what you actual see at the sight.Numerous galleries,starting with the intro....the kings....the 1000 buddha.....the temples.....the history......the clothing.....n the various ' wats ' Entrance fee at 12 usd is high........esp after paying 37usd to enter Angkor Wat. A cafe is available on the groundfloor n a tax free shopping complex....the Galleria is besides the Museum.

This is a large modern building with a shopping mall attached. This is where all of the ancient carvings are well displayed and there is a story guiding you as well as TV information. We did not opt to pay the additional $5 each for audio guide. Entrance is $12 but is a good background to your visit.
