    I wasn’t sure what to make of this place but it was a lot of fun! Kids had a blast and were excited to take pictures, which is never the case :P

    I first visited McDermott Gallery in the late 1990's and was captivated by his black and white visions of the land I love. I have traveled back to Siem Reap many times since then and each year I purchased a calendar and some photographs. I arrived back in Cambodia and was told that the Gallery had moved from it's old home in the grounds of the FCC to Raffles Hotel but there I was told that the Gallery has moved yet again to somewhere in Thailand. The FCC ispresently closed for renovation so I am hoping it will return to it's old home.

    One section of the Angkor Panorama Museum is very much worth visiting. Panorama Hall is a dome-like structure with a viewing platform at its centre. From there you can take in three scenes titled 'Defence Strategy', 'Construction Strategy', and 'Prosperity.'

    The three-dimensional illusion created here is the most impressive I’ve seen anywhere requiring only the naked eye. At certain points, it really feels as if you’re gazing miles off into the distance.

    The attention to detail is striking and with a good guide, as I was provided with, much can be learned. One scene depicts Khmers, under Jayavarman VII (then just a General) retaking their capital from the Chams in 1181. It had been captured four years earlier.

    The movie was melodramatic but somewhat instructive and the maps at the entrance were helpful as well. But the Panorama Hall is the best section by far, in my view.

    It's a nice gallery where, among others, Cambodian artists can get their work exposed. Creative art space.

    Hidden between local houses visitor enters a time machine, where 3 floor building is beautifully renovated and contains great collection of bicycles, cars, foto cameras, ships, clocks and many other aspects of the live in the last 200 years.

    There are also unique watches that are restored and still operational although more than 300 years old.

    Must see place in Siem Reap, to have a coffee and chat with the owner.
