Angkor National Museum
The Legend Revealed
The Angkor National Museum is the most important museum dedicated to the Angkor civilization in Cambodia and Asia. It is located in Siem Riep City, on the exclusive Charles de Gaulle Avenue, to the north of the National Road.
Its collection, exhibited in eight galleries (the Exclusive Gallery and the other ones identified from A to G), numbers several masterpieces of theangkor temples and it is the most complete representation of the culture, history and archeology of the Golden Age of Cambodia.
The Charles de Gaulle Avenue is not far from the temples themselves (about two kilometers from downtown). The facade maintains the harmony of the unique Angkorian architecture.
Comparable to any modern museum in the world, it has a fast ticketing service system (and it is possible to book online), a Guide Map and Audio Tour Set (personal translation device) with eight languages (Khmer, English, German, Korean, Japanese, French, Chinese and Thai.)
It is a highly recommended place to complete visits to the temples. The combination of modern technologies and multimedia presentations introduces the visitor into the magic of the Angkor world.
The Museum covers 20 thousand square meters (65,616 sq. feet) surrounded with the traditional Cambodian gardens and the exclusivity of the northern area of Siem Riep City.
The Museum is the product of a joint effort of the Royal Ministry of Culture and Fine Art, the APSARA Authority and the Museum Co., Ltd. on a 30 year concession period. No doubt, it is a world class museum dedicated to the preservation of the Khmer artifacts, collections and restorations of the fascinating Angkor Civilization.
The Angkor National Museum is unique in Cambodia. It has its own style and its full inspiration in the ancient glorious time of the Khmer Empire, just at the doors of the temples.
