National Museum of Cambodia

The National Museum of Cambodia houses one of the world’s greatest collections of Khmer cultural material including sculpture, ceramics and ethnographic objects from the prehistoric, pre-Angkorian, Angkorian and post-Angkorian periods. On current estimates there are 1,877 works of art on display in the museum galleries with a further 12,320 items secured in the basement storeroom.

The Museum promotes awareness, understanding and appreciation of Cambodia’s heritage through the presentation, conservation, safekeeping, interpretation and acquisition of Cambodian cultural material. It aims to educate and inspire its visitors.

Under the auspices of the Cambodian Department of Museums, the Museum has responsibility not only for its own collection, staff and premises but also to support and oversee all other museums in Cambodia. (National Museum of Cambodia)
