via Good Things Utah, 04 November 2022: Utah’s Natural History Museum is the next stop of the Angkor: Empire of Cambodia in the US.
Angkor: Empire of Cambodia is an immersive and complex imagining of Cambodia’s history and culture. Museum curators and officials worked closely with the Utah Cambodian Buddhist Temple as part of the exhibition’s planning and have noted this may be the Natural History Museum of Utah’s most ambitious exhibit ever.
The exhibit, featuring over 120 artifacts – half of which will be on tour outside of Cambodia for the first time – is noted for its size and scale and celebration of Cambodia’s rich history and explores the rise, decline, and resilience of the world’s largest religious complex.
Highlights include transportation to a dense southeast Asian forest, arriving in a large area with water projections, temple replicas, and other interactive components.
