    From everything we read and what we had been told by other travellers was to go check out the National Museum prior to our visit to Angkor Wat and all the temples. Seemed like a reasonable plan, even driver thought so.
    Unfortunately, its much less a museum and more an art gallery. The 3D dome in the centre of the building is a stunning piece of work and the twenty minute video was interesting cinematically, but none of it informative in any way.
    And then there is a bunch of original artwork downstairs for sale. And ice cream, which we tend not to miss very often. Might want to save your money for a guide at the temples themselves.
