The National Museum of Cambodia was designed and built by two architects, George Groslier and Ecole des Arts Cambodgiens, in the traditional style of the Khmers from 1917 to 1920.

This museum displays the archaeological, religious, and artistic products of the Khmer people from the 4th to the 13th centuries. There are over 5000 specimens, and they are also a symbol of the culture of the kingdom.

The National Museum has been in operation since the early twentieth century. Under French dominance, the construction process was extended by three years, resulting in a hybrid architecture of two countries, France and Cambodia. This is a unique feature of the National Museum when compared to other well-known Cambodian structures.

Although the National Museum was only built in 1917, all of the antiquities in this museum are very old. Since the third century, there have been numerous antiquities discovered. Cambodians take great care of and protect their ancient antiquities because they are determined to fight for their independence.

The National Museum is near the Royal Palace, between 178 and 13 streets. Every day, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., the time is open.
