This beautifully presented gallery and shop stood out from the 10 other stores we went hunting for sculptures in. Such a pleasure with items laid out well makes deciding so much easier.

This is very different than a regular tourist trap art store. When you arrive, the atmosphere and decor will blow you away. Theam's House really is an oasis in the city. Take the time to explore the artist's personal collection of Cambodian art and enjoy a drink in the courtyard. The workshop itself is incredible. You will find art for... More

This place is really a treasure. Behind the court yard walls you will find a beautifully balanced garden with its buildings. Very inspiring to be here and heartwarming to hear Theam (the creator/artist) talk about his work and life. If I was able I would have bought everything in the store of Theam's house because of their beauty(with a touch... More

A spin-off of the better established Angkor Craft shop .. can't remember the name. This shop is beautiful to visit just for the atmosphere.

On a previous trip to Siem Reap, I purchased some items from Theam's range within their store at FCC. This trip, a group of us jumped in a Tuk Tuk out to their location and loved it! After a quick tour & intro, we made some purchases from the shop & had we not been in a rush on the... More

An interesting tuk tuk ride (from our hotel - Sofitel) bringing us through the back alleyways before we arrived at the impressive Theam's House! 10/10 WOW factor once you step into the house/atelier/shop! We were fortunate to meet Maddy, the manager there. She was very informative and showed us through all the lovely artwork. There are arrays of beautifully crafted... More

Theam's house is the house-atelier-shop of Cambodian artist Theam. I was very enthusiastic of visiting it and buying a lacquered elephant. His pop twist on contemporary cambodian handicrafts is just my kind of thing, so much that I ended up buying the elephant and a painting! I couldn't help it. The place opens at 8:00 and I was there at... More

absolutely wonderful, there is something for every budget who would like thoughtful, current and interesting art, the paintings and reimagined buddhas are stunning but if your budget doesn't allow the table wears are made to the same standard - perfection. a must!

beautiful atelier/gallery of a very talented Khmer artist who studied in France. One of the best places in town to buy gifts and souvenirs

Interesting tuk-tuk ride to the outskirts of the city. Gorgeous Art Gallery, Shop and display of Theam's own private collection of art. We visited on the one day a week when the workshop had no artists working in it - this would have been great to see! Staff very helpful with excellent English.
