  • This gallery deserves to be more famous. Fees entrance 2.5$ for real causes. The architecture is nice. The artist have their own style, all different, very emotional. Welcoming and smiling guy at the entrance. I spent a good time there Recommend it !
  • Nice gallery featuring some young local artists. Happy to spend 2,5$ to see their work and help them out :)
  • 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.
  • Beautiful work from 5 talented artists who had a pretty tough upbringing. 3 floors to explore, $2 contribution pp
  • 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.
