Welcome to Angkor National Museum

Angkor National Museum

This museum is a useful stop-over en route to the temples, so visitors can gain some perspective on the centuries of history, rich symbolism, and other stories that often remain hidden when viewing the Angkor temples without a guide. The museum uses multimedia displays and various artefacts to evoke the golden age of Khmer culture. The building itself is ultra-modern, lavishly air-conditioned, and enormous, with over 20,000 square metres of floor space.

Information & Facts

No.968, Vithei Charles de Gaulle, Phoum Salakanseng, Khom Svaydangum, Siem Reap
Admission for non-Cambodians is $12, with an extra $3 for photography
Khmer is the official language. French is also spoken, but English is fast becoming popular with the younger generation.

Riel (KHR) is the official currency and is divided into 100 sen. Foreign currency is difficult to exchange with the exception of US Dollars. Most transactions require cash. US dollars and Thai Baht are accepted, although smaller transactions are usually done in riel. A torn US dollar note renders it useless. Credit cards are only accepted in a limited number of tourist-orientated hotels and restaurants in Phnom Penh and larger towns. There are a few ATMs in Phnom Penh, but they shouldn't be relied upon as a source of money; travellers cheques in US dollars or sterling can be cashed at a limited number of banks and larger hotels, though travellers cheques are not recommended due to limited acceptance.
