The National Museum can be easily recognized by its distinctive rusty-red exterior and traditional Cambodia terracotta roof. Built between 1917 and 1920, the National Museum offers a vast, stunning collection of ancient Khmer artifacts. There are more than 5,000 interesting items, including an eight-armed statue of Vishnu (7th Century), a statue of Shiva (9th Century) and a statue of the Buddha from the pre-Angkor period.
There is also a statue of King Jayavarman VII (1181), the king who was credited with establishing a network of roads in Cambodia. He used innovative building techniques to raise roads above the level of the swamps. He also built many sophisticated bridges during his time. On display are pottery and bronze artifacts dating back to the periods of Funan and Chenla (4th to 9th centuries).
