An absolute must see ... this brings together everything you see at Angkor. A brilliant, modern, air conditioned venue that appears purpose built to showcase Angkor and its wonders. I would recommend this to everyone!!

Visit the National Museum before the city of Angkor Wat allows to better understand the different monuments and their history. Count 2 hours of visit. You can rent headphones for 5 usd

We will be staying for a month in Siem Reap and it will be nice to know about the country's history and culture. This place has it all.

A 12 dollars ticket plus 5 dollars for audio guide. A 1 hour visit is quite enough. Big exhibition halls and no photos allowed inside. It has statues of Buddha in various shapes and sizes. As a national museum, I expect to see the culture...More

It's a good place to visit if you like archeology and historical facts, but you can skip it if you are going to the temples as all that is in the museum you can see it there.

My wife & I both enjoyed 2 hours taking in the information about the Angkor history, geography, culture, religion & art. We appreciated the use of different media; particularly the briefings and large screen film towards the end. We visited the museum on our last...More

First it must be said that the cost of entry is on the steep side. I'd say a reasonable charge would be around $6 or £5. Secondly, the rules are draconian. I understand that bags and backpacks are a nuisance so lockers are provided, but...More

Excellent museum, well laid out. Worth splashing out the extra $5 for the audio guide. We spent 3.5 hours going round, and could have spent longer

You really get a good insight into how and why all the temples were built. I didn't use the audio guild so cant comment on that but everything has also hot English info. There are a few video clips to watch and i highly recommend...More

We went here on our last morning and could have spent longer looking around if we had realised just what was here. It gives a great overall timeline of the temples of Angkor and explains the differences, in architecture, religion and mythology. This could give...More

No. According to my Cambodian tour guide, Cambodian citizens have to pay as well.

Siem Reap - Walking City? (12 Replies)
Hi - will be visiting SR towards the end of the year and have some itinerary lined up.. However, what's the general overview of walking around the town? Am planning to have a couple of "custom" walking tours - including walking from the Pub Street area to Angkor National Museum (roughly 20-30mins from Google). (I like to walk around town - get to see the local life and drop by any interesting shops/stalls along the way). I've done a lot of these long distance walks all over the globe -...More

Hi, It's quite a long walk and the sidewalk can be challenging at times as can crossing the main roads, but at least it won't be too hot or humid in December. You could walk up along the riverside and then cut across to the museum and then cut across again and walk back along Sisvatha Blvd to the pub street area. Cheers
Angkor National Museum- Do go or not to go (16 Replies)
Hi, What do people think. Someone has said best to go to the National Museum first before seeing the temples. I'm just not sure, as not really a museum person. Or maybe I'm just thinking about time....do I really want to spend 2 hours in a Museum or spend that time out seeing it for real. As I only have 2 full days and 2 half days (half days on flight in and out). I want to just try and make the most of the time we have. So will I be missing much? Thanks for your help

If you are planning on taking a guide (or are happy to read a guide book as you explore on your own) then you may considering giving the museum a miss. Then again, you might find it easier to relate/remember/comprehend and 'interpret' what your guide is telling you, if you do go to the museum. Sometimes, even 'english speaking' guides can be difficult to keep up with! On the other hand, if you are self exploring you might get more understanding of the temples if you see the museum first....More

My ten year old daughter and I are travelling together. My goal for this itinerary is to experience each city at a somewhat relaxed pace knowing that my daughter will want some down time each day to swim. Please review the itinerary and let me know your thoughts. Is it too much? Something you really think we are missing? Anything to add to Koh Samui?
