Battambang Provincial Museum

Battambang Provincial Museum

Updated: 2017-05-25 15:30:47

This small and rather dusty museum displays a trove of fine Angkorian lintels and statuary from all over Battambang Province, including pieces from Prasat Banan and Sneng. Signs are in Khmer, English and French.

A mammoth museum enlargement and modernisation project was in the planning stages when we were last in town and may be well under way by the time you visit.

The pieces seem to be arranged in no particular order with little regard to chronology or origin, but with its great central location, cheap admission fee of $1 and magnificent Angkorian works of art, this is definitely a great place to spend an hour or two (if it's open), but don't expect informative displays.

They also have temporary exhibitions - on forced transfers by the Khmer Rouge when we last visited - which can be very well done and informative.

The friendly staff cannot speak English, though each relic has a sign denoting century and origin. No photos are permitted inside the museum.
