What we say:
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 age or temple origin. With its great central location, cheap admission fee of $1 and magnificent Angkorian works of art, it's definitely a great place to spend an hour or two (if it's open), but don't expect informative displays.
The friendly staff cannot speak English, though each relic has a sign denoting century and origin. No photos are permitted inside the museum.
