the things are not very well displayed... but worth a go as it is the national museum, you will see something very interesting but guess this is a consolation prize you give yourself if for any reason you cannot make it to angkor wat

National Museum costs $5 per person. There was a very interesting video showing on what Cambodia used to be like in the 60's before the Khmer Rouge. This documentary showed actual footage on the education system, manufacturing, farming, hospitals & life in Cambodia and was so fascinating, it was certainly a different place then, clean and prosperous. However, if the museum had a clue they would put this TV screen in a theatre room or dedicated area with seating. They have it in a walkway where stairs are, so subsequently everyone was sitting on the ground or the stairs watching the video while others were trying to pass through, utterly stupid location! I asked if I could buy a copy of this video and its a shame they don't sell it. We sat on the stairs for about 45 mins and it was still going and we missed the beginning, so I'm guessing it could have been well over an hour documentary but it was awkward sitting on the stairwell for so long. The gardens within the museum are beautiful.

Was great to visit and look through its large collection of sculptures and artifacts, however, it did not have a lot of information about each piece. Building is beautiful and so were the gardens. It is not very big but definitely worth a visit.

We had been told that this museum was better than the one in Siem Reap so perhaps our expectations were too high. There is a lot of sculpture but not much information. There is a black and white film of the cremation of the king in 1928 which is very interesting. Otherwise the building and internal gardens are worth a look but it is not the best.

Very interesting exhibits coming from many areas of the country which were dispalyed in chronological order which facilitated us a lot. The big pieces were placed in halls outside the main building round the garden.
