Learn all about the Golden Era of the ancient Khmer Kingdom with a stop at Siem Reap's Angkor National Museum, a state-of-the-art showpiece on the majestic history of Angkor. With its stunning white interior built to look like a temple, as well as the various interactive displays and exhibits, this is definitely a must-visit attraction for anyone traveling to Siem Reap! Because of its plentiful information about the temples, particularly about the famed Angkor Wat, we highly recommend that you drop by the museum before exploring the multiple temples found in the country. Discover the origins of Khmer art, culture, and architecture as you wander through the museum and check out the eight extraordinary art galleries found inside that impart knowledge about the customs, traditions and different beliefs of the ancient empire. If you're itching to get an even deeper understanding of the Khmer empire, optional audio guides are also available in the museum, for an additional cost.

Tuk Tuk came 10min earlier as per stated...ticket redemption was easy and fast. Will recommend to take audio with additional USD$5 cause the museum is too huge and informative. Worth visit. T-Gallery is just next door...they do provide every 30min free shuttle train to Siem Reap tourism sports....👍🏻
The museum is a must see place when you want to learn about the Angkor history and culture. Highly recommended to visit here before getting to the temples.
The voucher is very easy to redeem and the tuk tuk driver was also kind and polite. The audio set is 5 usd. If you go in group, you can purchase only 1 and share.
Next to the museum is the largest duty free shopping mall in Siem Reap. It’s convenient to take a look too.
A very interesting experience when visiting the Angkor National Museum. My family arrived at the last hour of the day before closing, because it was the first time we arrived in Siem Reap that we would visit. The layout is very helpful in navigating Khmer history. Interesting attractions before we visit the Angkor complex.
Klook provides free transport for the same price. It's so convenient.
The driver was on time. However, he didn't know he was supposed to give us the voucher to exchange for the museum tickets. Luckily I've read reviews here and asked for it. So, do remember to make sure your driver gives you the voucher/tickets.
The museum has lots of artefacts from the temples. It details the different styles of the temples too. The information accompanying the displays is sufficient for most people. I rented an audio guide and stopped using it mid-way.
The Angkor National Museum is a good addition to one's itinerary in Siem Reap.
According to the evaluation, many people were picked up by tuktuk, but they accidentally saw an air-conditioned private car that day. They were very punctual and very polite. Thank you. The museum is very nice, but unfortunately the cultural relics in the museum cannot be photographed. I have already surfed the Internet and read books to do a lot of Angkor historical and cultural materials, and this is my itinerary on the last day of more than a week in Angkor Wat. Is it a general review? Because I already have background knowledge, buying a digital guide to visit the museum is like supplementing knowledge and reminiscing about the scenic spots from the previous few days. I think it is very good. Because someone suggested to come to the museum first and then to the attractions, I think it might not be that interesting... At the beginning, I saw a bunch of Buddha statues, listened to a bunch of past names, and there are very strange myths. I think it will only make people feel like visiting the museum. Confused... I really recommend that you have some background knowledge before you visit the museum. It will be more rewarding. Although the museum is not very big, there are a lot of cultural relics. I really have to listen to the electronic audio and watch the live video introduction. I think it takes at least 3-4 hours.
The hotel pick up was good, it's quite convenient (especially since you only pay 30 cents more than if you bought just the ticket on the museum's website). The museum itself is quite interesting and well-organized (especially compared to the one in Phnom Penh), and there's much information in English (so the audio guide doesn't seem necessary, unlike in the National Museum in Phnom Penh). It is worth visiting if you have some time, as it can give you quite a bit of information for your visits to the temples, and since most of the statues in the temples were removed and placed in museums, such as this one (or looted).
