At the end of a hot day, we almost decided not to bother with the museum, given our fatigue and the extravagant admission price ($12.00/person). I am so glad that we decided to give in to our curiosity and ignore our budget!. The museum is thoughtfully and beautifully constructed, with exhibits that are very well displayed, and very informative. Since my knowledge of Angor history was sketchy at best, and since I had been overwhelmed with the new sights and historical context, two hours in the beautiful, air conditioned, quiet and instructive building were perfect as an end to my first day and introduction to my second day exploring the ruins.
