Destination Details

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Phnom Penh - National Museum

The distinctive rust-red National Museum next to the Royal Palace was dedicated by King Sisowath in 1920. Over 5000 objects are on display, including Angkorian era statues, lingas and other artifacts, most notably the legendary statue of the 'Leper King'.

Though the emphasis is on Angkorian artifacts, there is also a good collection of pieces from later periods, including a special exhibition of post-Angkorian Buddha figures.

Visiting the museum after, rather than before a trip to the Archeological Park in Siem Reap helps lend context to the Angkorian artifacts. Multi-lingual tour guides are available inside the museum.
