National Museum of Cambodia សារមន្ទីរជាតិកម្ពុជា
On Street 13, next to the Royal Palace, Phnom Penh
National Museum in Phnom Penh is the most important repository of Khmer artifacts in the country. Over 5000 objects are on display including Angkorian era statues, lingas and other artifacts, most notably the legendary statue of the ‘Leper King’ from Siem Reap and an enormous 11th century bronze Vishnu. Though the emphasis is on Angkorian artifacts, there is also a good collection of pieces from later periods, including an exhibition of post-Angkorian Buddha figures.
