I wasn't too impressed.
There are literally thousands and thousands of stone carvings of Buddha, Vishnu, Ganesh etc, and not much else. We visited at the end of our stay in Siem Reap, when we were already a bit "Templed-Out". We probably should have gone here BEFORE doing the Angkor Wat trip.
As soon as you enter you are greeted with signs and instructions informing that photography, hats, bags,and water are all prohibited. Quite what damage any of these could do to stone sculptures weighing several tons, I know not. These days, museums tend to allow photography (without flash) and this annoyed me.
Entrance was $12 which is very expensive considering the price of everything else in Cambodia.
The audio tour was an extra $3 which I thought would be worthwhile, but I was wrong. The narration refers to numbers which at some time must have been attached to various exhibits. Unfortunately 90% of these seem to have dropped off and have never been replaced, thus rendering the narration virtually useless.
Most of the glass shelves are thickly coated with dust and are in urgent need of cleaning.
Every member of staff that I saw seemed to be crouched, hiding behind a desk or pillar, head down, completely engrossed in facebook or gmail on their smartphone, avoiding productive work. Issuing dusters and confiscating smartphones would work wonders.
I did get quite a good cup of coffee, though, from a bored, sullen employee.
I would recommend giving it a miss, but if you really must, . . . . go BEFORE the Temple Trips.
