Modern building but the exhibits were very poorly explained and to us very dull and boring. Poor sound system and so much more could be done here. Have discovered this museum is owned and run by a Thai comp with many of the exhibits from Thailand and not Cambodia. For the US$ 12.00 entrance fee, it was a real disappointment.

Head here for a few hours to learn about the history, art, and culture of the Khmer Empire’s Angkor period (9th – 14th century). Not only will you escape the heat and the crowds, but it’s the only place to see many of the artifacts discovered in and around the nearby Angkor archaeological sites. Some museums are a big yawn – but not this one. Modern design with well-presented exhibits and numerous informative displays in English. Loved the Gallery of 1000 Buddha!

A fantastic museum outlining the history of the Khmer dynasty, spanning several exhibits across a two storey building. Definetly spend an hour or 2 exploring this place if in Siem Reap. Relatively cheap admission cost as well, although there is an extra charge for the audio guide (I recommend this if you are heading there solo) .

We are planning on visiting a number of historic sites in Angkor, so we wanted to understand the timeline and link between the sites before we go. This museum is perfect for that. Admission is $12 per adult, and I recommend the additional $5 for the audio guide. The museum is well laid out and takes you from pre to post Angkor history and explains the carvings in detail and the sequence that they should be viewed. Highly recommended.

Small museum but very good. Bit pricey at $12 per adult .
Good previews on video recordings with choices of languages - in most rooms. Audio you’re also available.

A comprehensive Museum visit before Angkor Wat temple visit would have been very useful - to understand better the history and the significance.

Nice coffee shop and a very good museum shop.

I went to the museum before going to Angkor Wat to learn a bit beforehand. The museum is fabulous! I have a better understanding of what I’ll be seeing tomorrow at Angkor Wat & Angkor Thum. I recommend the headset for focus, as well as watching all the short movies.

December 2022 - A must see if you want a primer for Angkor Wat/Khmer history. USD 12 admission for foreign visitors plus 5USD the audio guide. Well worth it! We have been on several tours of Angkor Wat and the surrounding temples over the years and it was difficult to grasp the all the information thrown at you by the guide. We had been to the museum in 2012 but were to frugal for the audio guide, there’s just too much reading! Anyway it all starts to make much better sense thanks to the museum. Room of a 1000 Buddhas is spectacular. Different exhibition halls cover early history, Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, aspara, etc. and the aircon is great. I highly suggest you visit here before venturing out into temples. Plan two hours + to cover all the halls. Friendly staff, snack bar, decent gift shop, and a $2 tuktuk from most of Siem Reap.

$12 adults. Great A/C. Well displayed items with English descriptions. Most items are from Angkor Wat temples that are now well protected here from the elements. Definitely worth visiting. Gift shop overpriced though.

I was a happy man when I was told that the museum had opened up. The museum fee is reasonable and is a must if you want to make sense of the huge temples in the Angkor complex. Starting from the briefing to the chronological manner the exhibits are arranged, the museum does a great job in preparing you for the temple run you'd be doing the following days.

There's also a little cafe at the centre about half way through the museum tour, which serves great beverages and snacks.
