Angkor National Museum

Siem Reap Attractions

Angkor National Museum is a must-visit attraction in Siem Reap if you’re looking to learn about the ancient Khmer civilisation and Angkorian temples. Located along Charles de Gaulle Boulevard, this two-storey museum houses eight galleries with over 1,000 artefacts that are categorised according to era, religion and royalty.
 
Visitors are lead to an amphitheatre to watch a short video about the museum’s history, amenities and services before exploring the galleries. Available in Khmer, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, English, French and Thai languages, this orientation is scheduled at 15-minute intervals.

Connected via a spiral corridor, displays include recovered relics from the pre-Angkorian periods of Funan and Chenla, great Khmer kings, Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, stone pallets with ancient Khmer and Sanskrit inscriptions, as well as traditional costumes of the royal family, warriors, and Apsara dancers.
 
Angkor National Museum’s most impressive section is the Gallery of 1000 Buddhas, where hundreds of wooden, jade, and metal sculptures are carefully arranged in floor-to-ceiling display cases. Each is fitted with a short description of its material and original locale, though most were recovered from the temple ruins of Banteay Kdei, Bayon, Angkor Wat and Preah Vihear.
 
Visitors are advised to visit the Angkor National Museum prior to Angkor Archaelogical Park as there are numerous touch-screen videos and informative commentary about each individual temple. Open daily, entrance to the Angkor National Museum is priced at US$12 while audio translation devices are available for US$3.
