  • it was a small place but it was good to see because there are a lot of statute that found long long time ago.  more »
  • Museum in transformation. All (little) is exposed in bulk in an adjacent building, without explanation. This building is also an expo on the genocide, it would have been interesting to watch but who is relegated back, so we can't read signs.

  • If you can enter (luck) small museum but not uninteresting. a few carved lintels of Angkor era. A break in a busy tourist circuit. Sometimes a few archaeological finds (no) for sale. There is an ensuite with interesting exhibitions in relation to local activities.

  • This museum is under construction and is due for completion in a couple of months. What they've done, until then, is simply shove all the exhibits into an old building. No order, no information. Lots of empty cabinets. They've even freshly damages some of the lintels. They could very easily put some information up but this feels in no way curated. We happened to know about the different Hindu and Buddhist pieces already but if you didn't have an appreciation of this before walking in you would feel totally lost. There is a big pile of junk taking up half of the exhibit space. Until they finish the main museum upgrade, don't bother with this place. Once the museum is finished, I'm sure it will improve. The pieces they have displayed have a lot of potential to make an informative experience.
  • Not many people in Battambang have been to this museum. There are quite several things to learn and the environment around the museum is also relaxing.
  • Not so much to see, anywaway, they charge only a dollar, and it's well worth preserving those pieces.
