Lot's of statuary -- beautiful pieces. Some charming artifacts and a pleasant garden. If you have visited many of the temples and wondered why they lacked statues, this is the place to see what originally inhabited the temple. I recommend it.

Not much to see but still a good collection of old artifacts. Better get the audio if your lazy to read or just want a better explanation.

Historical artifacts and statues, its just not my thing but it was okay. It might have been more interesting with the audio tour though.

This can be as long or short visit was you like. I spent about 30 mins. There are lots of artefacts. Not sure you need the audio as there are brief descriptions. See if you can find the moon rock!

At $10 per adult, the museum is rather expensive for what it is. The artefacts, while great are still completely unknown to us as the descriptions were all one line and explained nothing about the artefact. You could however rent an audio guide for additional$5...More

Very disappointed because whilst you do get to some extremely old sculptures and that is great, there are one line explanations, nothing interactive and the whole thing was same/same but different. How they can charge $15 AUS for this is astounding! Total rip off -...More

I have been to Angkor Wat many times, which I am sure helps to put the contents of much the National Museum into context. But the museum covers much more than just the Angkor Period. It has galleries stretching from prehistoric times, to the Bronze...More
