Can't get enough of Cambodia's ancient relics? Battambang museum offers an excellent display of sculptures and sandstone carvings, mostly items that have been removed from Cambodia's various temples.
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.
