Cambodia's Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts just completed an overhaul of the Angkor Borei Museum exhibits and installed educational material as well as exhibit cases. Well worth the drive from Phnom Penh: can visit the museum *after* going to Phnom Da temples.

The Angkor Borei Museum was the brainchild of an agronomist named Roland who worked for a European Union project to improve farming methods, and who saw the potential of creating a museum to promote tourism and microenterprise in this dusty Takeo settlement. He teamed up with a University of Hawai'i archaeologist named Miriam and her students to pair statuary fragments that villagers had brought to the district office for years with signage explaining their significance. The Angkor Borei museum's grand opening in 1999, replete with ribbon-cutting and classical Khmer dance, heralded the start of a long process of development and change. Nearly 20 years later, the museum has a new building, and the US Embassy (Phnom Penh) has given the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts support to upgrade the exhibits. It's a modest museum, built with few funds, that seeks to enrich your experience at Angkor Borei and Phnom Da. Please visit this museum; then go to Kampong Cham's Memot museum, and then travel NW to Battambang to see a truly beautiful newly-renovated museum. It is in such places that one understands the true genius of ancient Khmer civilization: and the beauty of Cambodia.

The museum has a run down look and not enough information on the artifacts housed in there. Worth a visit, but one comes away with a dissatisfied feeling and the need to know more.

This museum is interesting, specially about some ancient stone inscriptions and a few sculptures. The trip from Takeo by boat is amazing and I don't underestand why tourists complain in this forum about the price: it is 35 dollars for the whole boat, visiting Angkor Borei and Phnom Da Temple, and come back. It takes more than two hours, why did they accept bargaining?? People must make thier bussiness too, not only in Europe
