a very spacious museum. an absolutely must-visit attraction for everyone. interesting exhibitions and an amazing souvenir shop
The National Museum of Phnom Penh was built in 1913. At present, it contains handicraft and sculpture works from the 4th to 10th centuries and Angkor Dynasty, several photographs of Angkor taken by French photographers, and many authentic sculptures of Angkor Wat. Museum is a typical traditional Khmer architectural style of open design, full of exotic flavor. There is a small pavilion in the center, which worships a god, surrounded by four artificial lotus ponds, with grass nurseries and benches alternating. It is like a sound insulation wall, which blocks the noise of the downtown outside the pavilion and allows visitors to enjoy quietly. The name of the exhibition hall of Phnom Penh National Museum is still not remembered. The exhibits are mainly stone sculptures, mainly Buddha statues. Most of them come from Angkor Wat in Siem Reap. There are also some jewelry and bronzes. There is a hall with some wooden seats, carriages. What impressed me deeply was that there were many small blue and red glass grains made of bracelets unearthed with a funeral.
Phnom Penh National Museum is a very quiet small museum, outside the noisy and hot environment, as soon as you come in, you will be quiet, with a sense of traversing time and space. There are also cats stretching beside the lotus pond. Many of the collection statues have been damaged, but they can still feel the glory of Angkor Dynasty. Looking up at Cambodia's poverty and backwardness, people can not help but sigh.
The museum is located between the Imperial Palace and the Monastery of Unalan. Although there are not many exhibition halls, many original Angkor Wat statues are preserved. In addition, there are pottery, wooden Buddha statues, wooden boats, bronzes and so on. Some of the exhibits are placed next to tropical plants. The vivid green also seems to bring life to the exhibits. The museum itself is the roof of red pottery. It has a beautiful appearance and is worth seeing.

My favorite place when i study at university. when my friend visit phnom penh, i always take them to visit there. for me ticket only 500R
The museum is near the Grand Palace, just walk. It tells the historical origin of Cambodian culture, including Angkor civilization, Hinduism and so on. They are statues and stone tablets of some gods. They contain various myths and stories. It's really worth leaving time here for 3 hours. If you feel bored, go out to the small garden.
