National Museum of Cambodia

On our final day in Phnom Penh included a visit to the National Museum of Cambodia. Built between 1917 and 1920 it is a striking example of traditional Khmer architecture. The museum is home to the one of the world’s finest collections of Khmer sculpture spanning the 7th through 20th centuries. Next stop Siem Reap and the ruins of Angkor, the seat of the Khmer kingdom from the 9th–15th centuries.
