    I felt my visit to the temples was really enhanced after a visit to this museum. It's fairly new and very comprehensive. Be sure to pay attention to the different artistic styles and learn how to spot the different representations of gods.

    I'm thrilled to see Cambodia finally get a high quality museum to showcase the wonderful historical artifacts of Angkor. Finally some competition for the Musée Guimet!

    This museum still has some rough spots but it is an honest effort at an attractive and informative display of the treasure of Angkor. The collection is extensive, the lighting and placement are good, and the explanations are helpful even if they aren't as organized or informative as they could be.

    Definitely worth a visit. Not at the expense of the major archeological sights but an informative way to take a break and enjoy a little air conditioning.

    Please do not go to the Angkor National Museum and go visit the real "museum" by visiting the actual Angkor Wat site. It's a complete waste of time going to this museum. Our tour guide went and had us spend at least an hour checking out random statutes, 20 minutes of which was at the coffee stand (basically it was a way for us to spend money, even though we didn't want to).

    Enjoyed it, but would have appreciated more displays of the life of the average Cambodian................if you're into statues of Budha in his many forms this is the place to go! I was expecting more on the people and culture.

    If you have the time and you are not going to the temples with a tour guide, it's worth seeing before you go to Angkor. Make sure you take the audio tour. But if you have spent a few days at the temples with a guide, you can skip it.
