  • To be sure, a worthwhile visit to those looking to learn what lurks deep within the Cambodian heart. Many of the things they try to hide from the tourists can be found here. It's not a huge gallery, but large enough to get a better idea of what's going on in this society. Lastly, the art is impressive. The entry wasn't horrendous and didn't feel like a rip-off.
  • Probably the most interesting art gallery I saw in Southeast Asia. The subjects are dark and graphic, which makes sense considering the artists' backgrounds. Great to see art function as a sort of therapy here. Kind of surrounded by nothingness, but not too far of a walk from the city center. Make a trip.
  • Amazing place, well worth the entrance fee. Great showcase of the local artists talent. If you would be interested into buying something, for the quality exposed, prices are also really low! To me, a must visit in Battambang
  • Brilliant and moving contemporary art exhibitions from local artists, definitely worth a visit.
  • Very interesting gallery showcasing the talents of 4 contemporary cambodian artists, with a selection of paintings and sculptures inspired by their common experiences of growing up in Cambodia, exploring themes such as love, family acrimony, loneliness, poverty and corruption
