Is this the World’s Most Beautiful Open-Air Museum?

The National Museum in Phnom Penh, Cambodia might be the world’s most beautiful open-air museum where treasures of old Khmer civilization are displayed without the boring traps of most modern museum you’ve been in the past. The open-air concept goes into the natural, inviting courtyard with a lush green pool, tropical trees and well-manicured garden. Literally, it’s like a vacation home filled with artifacts of old yore.

Travel tip: 

I’d recommend you to visit the Grand Royal Palace (located next door) first and end your day at the National Museum. This is really a great place to end your day before going back to your hostel or wherever you stay.
