A great way to experience the Cambodian culture. It was a beautiful show and very entertaining. My husband is not into dance or cultural shows and he LOVED it and he even thanked me afterwards for bringing him despite his hesitations. Please do not miss this if you are in Phnom Penh.

Exceptional performance and a worthy cause. We loved this show - the beautiful costumes, elegant dances and traditional music. A real highlight to our trip. The show lasts around 50 minutes and includes information on how the organisation is reviving the Cambodian arts across the country. Well worth the ticket cost of only $15. Doors open at 6.45pm and it's... More

When I attend performances, we are lucky to see 2 dances in one event. What a treat it was to see 5 dances; if I recall correctly. Perfect location and great showcase of classical and folk dances throughout Cambodia. A must see and affordable. Please don't forget to make a donate afterward :)

We went to see this at the end of our first day in Phnom Penh. It was a lovely way to finish after the horrors of the killing fields and genocide museum. It was great to remember Cambodia has a culture beyond the news stories that I remember from my childhood. The show lasted an hour. The dancers performed beautifully... More

A great show! Lovely dances, great musicians and two wonderful older generation singers singing together with a young singer - they all create an esoteric show in the garden of the National Museum. The show is a part of an impressive effort of the Cambodian artists to recover the arts and culture in their country after the centuries of suppression... More

The show was interesting to watch and the buffet was delicious. The show was just the right length of time to keep it interesting and not get too long.
