Reviewed February 2, 2013

Reasonably prized and well organized. We liked the exhibits - well displayed. They have a little video in the beginning to orient you. The cafe severs good coffee.

“Impressive, well worth visiting!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

We spent a few hours here and could have spent longer. The museum is beautiful, well set out and rich in the incredible history, sculptures and artifacts of the temples and Khmer culture. $20 per person well worth it. One of the best museums ever, highly recommend.

“A memorable visit”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Full audio guide allows you to wander at your on pace whilst still understanding everything you see. Staff are not as attentive as they could be but do not let them put you off.

“Museum gets you out of the heat and into the history”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

This is a beautiful building architecturally, and a great museum. In hindsight we would have preferred to see this museum before going out to visit the temples, because it lays out the history in chronological order--not always the case when you visit . We were silenced by the hall with the 1,000 Buddhas. The ambient lighting, with feature Buddhas spotlighted, is really stunning. And although I'm usually antsy to get out of those videos, the briefing video is also a good overview of how the museum is organized, and puts everything in context. Worth a visit for sure and the $12 USD for admission. You will have to check your bags (free) so don't take more than you need.

“Worth it”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The museum is air conditioned and it did a good job of presenting the history and the artifacts. There are a number of rooms with more mythologic, religious and historic explanations alongside the artifacts.
