Full of treasures and well worth getting the audio guide for an extra $5’s. I would suggest going before you head to the temples otherwise the material is repeated by the guide

The only negative: You have to check your purse, although they will give you a small bag to put essentials in. Other than that it was a very nice museum with good exhibits that help explain the history and religion of the area.

I would recommend going to the museum before going on a tour of the temples as it gives you a context. The museum is fairly new and is spacious and well laid out. There is an entrance fee.

Entrance fee is $12 USD if you buy when you’re there. Audio guide is $5 USD. Bag check is free though. They give you a little pass on a lanyard so you can claim your bags once you’re done exploring the museum.
