  • What an incredible gallery. We started out with a brief history lesson as we walked through the grounds into the gallery and work shop space. Theam is a talented artist with a beautiful heart as well....  more »
  • Two years ago we were in cambodia and were lucky to buy an elephant of the borrico hotel angkor shop premium's. After a time, we think that we should have bought some more elephant so close the birthday of my wife thought was the best gift that could make him a couple of these precious elephants. I started to work and I got on the internet to find the contact address of the store and when found it send them an email asking prices of the elephants and the looking for there selling. Nearly two weeks after I answered with a list of prices and shipping costs from cambodia. After seeing what I wanted to reply to your e-mail asking two elephants. My surprise was becoming larger as my wife birthday approaching and not got answer to my pedido.asi as already unviable time to get the surprise for my wife, I went back to see what was happening with my pedido.nunca more I had contest ation. I left without my gift for my wife and my wife without her surprise. Already spent nearly three months and without answer my emails I've decided to write this mail so that people know that the artist behind is a purely economic profile and giving him equal orders of small individuals only want parts with scarce value, although of very high cost to be Cambodia, since prices even though they are not expensive are high even for us. In short, I recommend buying anywhere else except here, since I understand that not are serious.

  • Artists residence, studio, workshop, gallery, shop, museum... Cambodian artist Lim Muy Theam has converted his home into an impressive tropical haven to house his creative visions. You shouldn't miss this!
  • I love everything in this house! I enjoyed our last day in Siem Reap at Theam's House. It summarized the kingdom of Cambodia. He gathered all of his collection of arts, religion, history, représentation, artistic, and lifestyle and more at his house. They also sell some items like silk, decoration, frames, religion figures and a lot more. It's like a one stop museum plus shopping. We also enjoyed their talking bird in Khmer. Had fun with him. Hope you also visit them, it's worth spending of time in Siem Reap.
  • Nice handicraft workshop. Visitors are welcome to see the handicraft making. If you like it you can buy direct from the workshop. They also sell handicraft at many stores and hotels in Siem Reap town.
  • Quiet place and safe for staying. I like it.
  • Splendid gallery! Very original and interesting ! We bought a beautiful lacquer sculpture of Buddha. It's also interesting to their artisans at their work
