National Museum

6. Butterfly Garden, Cultural Village and National Museum – On the way to Banteay Srei (a tiny but worthwhile temple about 40 minutes out of town), ask your guide/driver to stop at the Butterfly Garden. Admission is cheap and it’s full of pretty winged creatures that you can prance alongside of. Fifteen bucks will get you into the Cultural Village, where you can not only feast your eyes on miniaturized versions of famous Cambodian structures but also witness traditional wedding ceremonies and Apsara dances. From what I hear, though, it’s not the greatest and there’s little to no English offered. Where you SHOULD go though, is the National Museum. A twelve dollar entry fee will get you in and walk you through the history of the region as well as a few religious/art exhibits. ‘Definitely worth it, and something you should do early in your trip so you can appreciate the temples a little more.
