The museum is a joint establishment between Apsara Authority and Sophia University with the funding from AEON (Japan) in order to exhibit and preserve the artifact discovered at Banteay Kdei Temple, mainly sculptures of Buddha, and in particular the stella of the 1000 Buddhas. From its opening in 2008 the museum has gradually expanded its exhibition and programming. Today, the museum houses three exhibitions of objects found during archaeological excavation in the park of Angkor. These objects will contribute to ameliorate the understanding of monuments of Angkor.
Open every day from 8.00 AM to 5.00 PM. Last admission tickets are sold at 4.30 PM.
Closed on Tuesday and during Khmer holidays.
The museum is currently closed until April 30, 2017 for restoration.
