I wouldn't recommend this attraction. It was very expensive for what you get to see. Obviously lots of statues. I didn't do the audio tour, and there wasn't any information on display.

This museum consists mainly of sand stone statues from the 11th or 12th century. We spent about 30 minutes here and it was more than enough. If you’re short on time you could probably skip this stop and not miss much.

It's absolutely worth going to if you want to learn about the history of the country. Make sure your legs and shoulders are covered so that you're permitted inside. This holds true for almost all places of historical importance at Cambodia but no one will...More

Rather expensive to enter for what it is. Loads of artefacts on view here from the last 1000 years. Housed in a beautiful building.

I've been to Angkor National Museum but this National Museum has more collections about inscriptions and very good for researchers. For me still worth it!

Know before you go, this museum houses lots of amazing finds from historical periods up to 1,000 years ago. But if you do not have a museum guide (none available when we went) or pay for the audio tour, there is not much information available...More
