Great visitor place. Very easy to navigate. Reasonable entry price. Extra for the audio guides. Really shows the History of the Khmer and their History is just stunning. Worth a visit.

The set up is quite nice. Easy to navigate, very clean, and well organized and affordable (12$). Unfortunately I found that there wasn't enough practicable info about the temples themselves and more went into detail about the religious stories and background of it all. I think some simple questions need to be answered like: How long did it take to... More

If tour and travel guides want their customers to understand and enjoy Angkorian history, they should brings their guests to this museum first before doing the usual Angkor Wat/Angkor Thom circuit. This place is very well done with the presentation and the amount of information they they provide about Angkor's history. It helps put the pieces together when you actually... More

Having time to kill due to an evening flight I spent a couple of hours in this fantastic museum. It is well laid out with video presentations where you could sit and learn more about the Kymer culture and history. The statutes of Buddhas and Gods are amazing and well preserved. At 15 dollars and 3 dollars for the audio,... More

We went to the Angkor Musem after visiting part of the temples in Siem Reap. Even though expensive and small, it is quite a good museum and gives a good context to and understanding of the Khmer culture and history. Would recommend you visit it before you visit the temples as it will add to your appreciation of the temples.

Allow at least 1.5 hours to enjoy this museum, better still 2. Like others have said, a visit before Angkor Wat will give you more appreciation for what you are seeing later.

Clean, audio guides available in different languages but not so useful, few points to hear information. We visiting Angkor before going to the museum and we had a guide so the museum simply repeated the infos we already knew plus some more. I would recommend going there before visiting the temples.

First of all, this is a comparatively expensive experience ($12 pp + $3 for optional audio guide). It is also poor value for money and in no way improves or enhances your experience of a visit to the temples as other reviewers have suggested. This is a confusing, stand alone museum. If you can read English then don't bother with... More

A must go place if you would like to understand the Khmer culture and religion. It will help you to understand the Angkor temples. At the beginning I thought 12$ for a museum in Cambodia was too expensive but it really worth it. During the visit there are several videos in English, French, Chinese, Korean etc (no Spanish or German)... More
