  • Okay so it's not the Getty but it's an amazing collection, it's well presented, the audio headsets are clean, work well and the content is excellent. We had a flight to get to so whizzed through in two hours, 3-4 are recommended. A visit here also blends perfectly with those that have toured the temples (basically everyone that visits Siem Reap).
  • I recommend you go before any guided tour so that you can soak up as much history as you can in one sitting in a comfortable air-conditioned sitting. The archeological artifacts are well-preserved, and v well presented. You should take at least 2hrs to be able to fully appreciate everything on display. I finished around 1745 and was treated to a mild red sunset hue over the top of the building as I edited.
