Ok, but not worth the time unless you have already seen the temples (small and large tours and some out if the city) and taken a bicycle tour of the area with Butterfly Tours and seen the circus. So probably only for those staying more than four days.

This is well worth visiting. Many relics from the temples. Well laid out - very informative. We used the audio guides which are always good.

This is a wonderfully run museum, properly maintained and managed. I would encourage visitors to come here before visiting any other temples, as the exhibits here in the national museum will give you basic idea of the history of the Khmer Empire, their architectural differences and cultural background of the Khmer Empire. A visit to here has help me to... More

Nice medium sized museum devoted to Khmer history, meaning there's lots of stone statues and carvings to see. For me everything began to look a bit monotonous after about 10 minutes.

I spent an hour in the museum. It was near the end of my trip and I walked through, just looking at the things that caught my interest. It was cool, clean, well-organized, and new. You could spend hours watching the videos and reading everything carefully. If you want to get background on the history of the temples, this would... More

The most boring museum we have ever visited! We were so unbelievably disappointed, and ended up leaving after around half an hour as we couldn't endure seeing anymore pieces of brickwork! I wouldn't recommend this to anyone - ever.

As has been said by many reviewers, we also recommend visiting this museum before going out to the temples as it provides you a comprehensive background to history of the country, and the architectural history of the temples. This is not a stuffy and neglected museum, but a very well looked after and interesting living exhibit. We felt we could... More

The entry ticket to this place is 12$ per person and is totally worth the price. The museum has a great display of the murals and other items collected from the various temple sites. It has a good showcase of detailed Khamer history and culture. Many exhibits are described through Audio visuals and are fantastic. Highly recommended. It closes at... More

We were blown away by this museum, the displays are modern and fresh, there are many videos in different languages that provide a lot of information throughout the museum. The museum is laid out in 8 galleries showing a different aspect of the Khmer history. You can take your camera into the museum but are not allowed to take photographs... More
