It is fantastic from the outside, the roofwork is very intricate. If you've got the time in the city it is worth a visit, but not a top attraction in my opinion either. Consider visiting this after Wat Phnom, Royal Palace and other attractions.

It looks really nice from the outside. We were really disappointed from the inside though. First you can't take pictures and then there is not really much to see. Definitly not worth the money and time.

It has a number of well preserved angkorian statues, so it is a must, but it would have been nice if they had put up more information around the museum about the exhibits
