Angkor National Museum

ronan crowley

If you are interested to know the history of the development of the Angkor area, its rulers, the people, the influence of religion, the architecture and the design, then this museum is for you. The displays of various pieces of sculpture are well organised and put the history of the Angkor people and temple complex in an understandable way. There is an audio guide (+US$3) which gives you extra information that you can just trigger at each exhibit. It's an excellent tour to do before you visit the temples so you have more of an understanding of what you are looking at around the archaeological park. You can quite easily spend 2+ hours here. The only criticism is that at $12 entry it's relatively expensive, but if you like to know the history of what you are looking at and have the time, it's not such a high price to pay.
