Opened in 2007 to house sculpture from Angkor, the Preah Norodom Sihanouk-Angkor Museum does not seem to be attracting enough visitors.

Museum fails to attract the temple tourists
Phnom Penh Post, 14 May 2010

Siem Reap’s million-dollar Preah Norodom Sihanouk-Angkor Museum was inaugurated with great fanfare in November 2007, but its promise of becoming an important tourism add-on never eventuated.

Now the museum itself is in danger of becoming a museum piece. It has a sorry air, it’s dusty and drab, the surrounding gardens are mostly untended, and the building itself is slowly declining into disrepair.
