To set the stage for your vacation in Cambodia, I suggest visiting the Angkor National Museum. It provides you historical information important for your visit to this wonderful country with great people and culture. I highly recommend spending an hour of your time to know...More
This museum has an amazing collection of artefacts and information related to the Angkor period in Cambodia. Although we visited it after our day exploring Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, etc, we felt it would've been even better as a prelude to that day.
Outstanding introduction to the peoples of Cambodia and their contributions over many centuries. Tremendous interpretation of religious history. At the end a wonderful introduction to Angkor Wat and Angkor Tom, which I will be visiting the next two days.
Hey you should visit here before going to Angkor Wat. Its not free, fee is $12. Learn about the Religion and history of Angkor Wat.
Take tuktuk to go there, and take tuktuk somewhere else for lunch after that.

The museum is well organised, especially with the audio guide.

Entrance fee is $12 USD if you buy when you’re there. Audio guide is $5 USD.
Bag check is free though. They give you a little pass on a lanyard so you can claim your bags once you’re done exploring the museum.
