  • You should visit this museum before you visit Angkor Wat. It has many artifacts. It's clean. Has friendly staff. It has a gift shop.

  • As a history lover this was one place I would love to revisit. So many historical sculptures and artifacts and that too in such good condition. Really its like you enter the 1000 year old...

  • I'm not really a museum person but still rate the Angkor National Museum highly enough to give it 4 stars. It takes around 60-90 minutes to see everything.

  • Should take a visit before going to Angkor Wat Angkor Thom. This place would make you understand things easier. There is headset in various languages to the other providing you information in each section of museum.
  • Welocme to Angkor National Museum Siem Reap as hospitality for both national and international tourists from around the world.
  • I love all the statues they have here that's in great condition; wide array of hindu carvings and they have intrative sections aswell, without the audio tour its $12. Well kept and managed Museum best IMO in Cambodia even better than the National Museum in Phnom Penh.
  • Not open when we tried to visit on april 2nd of 2022, even the gates were closed to the car park.
  • One of the best places to visit in the country. The sights were absolutely amazing. The price was incredibly low for entry. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about everything. Nonstop incredible information. Must see for everyone. People are so friendly.
