You should visit this museum before you visit Angkor Wat. It has many artifacts. It's clean. Has friendly staff. It has a gift shop.

The most must must visit place of Cambodia
Dec 2019
As a history lover this was one place I would love to revisit. So many historical sculptures and artifacts and that too in such good condition. Really its like you enter the 1000 year old world.

Really good work is done by the historians, government and locals to manage this museum.

Its not a big museum and it may take 2 hours to roam and check around but the treasures here are unbelievable.

Must must visit place to see Angkor Culture

I'm not really a museum person but still rate the Angkor National Museum highly enough to give it 4 stars. It takes around 60-90 minutes to see everything.

Well laid out with a good mix of artifacts and interactive displays
Mar 2020
We were here at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic and the place was almost deserted. There were about 6 other tourists the whole time and we were so spread out, it felt like we had the place all to ourselves. Apart from the first room dedicated to statues of Buddha, the museum was laid out to move through a timeline of the Cambodian history, with a good mix of artifacts and interactive displays. I especially appreciated the reliefs rescued and labelled from some of the temples we had visited as it gave you a great idea of the fine details and how the temples must have looked once. I’d recommend the museum as an afternoon activity to escape the hot sun.

A Compact and Curious Cambodian Museum ...
Nov 2019
At this compact, centrally located museum, you can immerse yourself in a deeper education about and appreciation of, the history of Cambodia. There are short movies and interactive displays specifically highlighting the backstory on some of Siem Reap's more famous local sights, too. The batik paintings display was an added bonus at the time we visited. Definitely worth checking out the exhibits here and I plan to go back, next time I am in town.

The Museum takes you back to the Golden Era of the Khmer Kingdom, when marvels such as Angkor Wat were masterminded and created. This period introduced the origin of Khmer art, culture and architecture, that has continued to inspire to this day. Lots of galleries, ancient statues and original artifacts, lots to see and learn if you don't visit at the end of a LONG day!

Nice museum with ace gift shop attached!.....
Mar 2020
I suspect most travellers do not get to visit or miss out on this excellent museum in their rush to see the real deal at Angkor Wat - which is a real shame, because the
museum should be a significant part of their overall Angkor Wat experience. It should be the precursor to or the follow-up of any visit to Angkor, and deserves a good 2 hours minimum of the visitors' time. I was fortunate that my hotel was located just a 10 minute walk away, so I was able to visit before going to see the site itself. The museum (open 8.30am - 6.30pm daily) concentrates on the Khmer period when Angkor was at the height of its power. The visit commences with a short introductory audio-visual, setting out the history of the Khmer Empire and the site at Angkor Wat, before leading you to well -laid out Galleries, each on a different theme reflecting the site at Angkor where the artefacts displayed were found (eg. the room of 1,000 Buddhas). There is a small cafe where you can pause for refreshment during your visit, and a well-stocked gift shop with a nice selection of arts/crafts, silks, books, postcards and gifts. Recommended.

Very educational
Feb 2020
This has an incredible collection of historical artifacts. We spent almost 2 hours here and we still felt like we rushed through, but we enjoyed our visit (and it was cool inside!). We visited the day after visiting the temples - a lot of what we saw here explained what we had seen but not understood at the temples. It might have been better to visit the museum before the temples. Better yet, spend a little time reading about Khmer history before visiting the area - it will help.

Nice place but very expensive
Mar 2020 • Couples
Most hotels can save you a couple of dollars by selling you tickets for the museum at 2 Dollars each, then the museum charge you 9 dollars instead of 12 saving you a massive 1 dollar. Then you have to pull out another 5 dollars for the audio equipment, Don’t get me wrong you will learn everything you need to know and more about the culture and sites of all the main temples and religious groups but I was a little taken aback at the price to get in. I was very impressed at the set up and few videos scattered around in different areas and a good coffee bar halfway round, plus a decent shop at the end of your tour, if you want to splash out on a few post cards to send to the family back home, unfortunately they don’t sell stamps but most hotels can sort that. Very interesting place with lots to offer.
