    Great museum
    A fabulous visit to this delightful museum. Great displays, wonderful hospitality and informative content. MOEUN OMRA and TRY SOKUNTHEARY were perfect guides, welcoming and knowledgable. Highly recommended - it’s a lovely and interesting way to spend an hour.

    Friendly and knowledgeable staff
    The staff are very friendly and welcoming, from the security guard to the front of house staff to the tour guide. The team are obviously very passionate about their work, and they have a lot of knowledge about textiles. There is lots of empty space in the building, but I feel this museum will expand over time. I enjoyed learning about the differences in techniques for making silk between the countries, and how to tell the difference between national costumes. Entry fee is USD$3 which is reasonable.

    a hidden gem
    This hidden gem is a must for anyone interested in textiles and regional dress. There is an extensive collection of items on display and you have your own guide for the visit. She was informative, and the displays were well presented in English. As it is just across from the Angkor Ticket Office, it really needs bigger signage in order to gain attention. Even tuk tuk drivers don't know it.

    Beautiful textiles and technique exhibits. Inexpensive museum, great indoor activity!
    A great respite from the afternoon heat. Very friendly and informative staff. Beautiful displays of various textile methods from the Mekong & Ganges River regions. Weaving, embroidery and brocade fabrics are displayed. Beautiful art and costumes worn by regional ethnic groups and a few contemporary styles too. Beautiful exhibits!

    Small and quick, gorgeous clothing and textiles! Fun gifts too.
    We made a quick stop to visit this beautiful little museum. Gorgeous traditional clothing and textiles! A staff member guides you. Normally I don't like guided tours, but he explained just enough and demonstrated some fun things. I got to try block printing, that was fun. And they have a tiny gift shop with many, many little bracelets that staff members made. I bought a whole bunch and gave them as gifts (and kept some for me)---everybody LOVED the bracelets! And there were maybe $1 each!

    Creative Textiles
    What an interesting museum. Although some distance from the centre of Siem Reap it is well worth a visit . ( $4 for a tuk tuk ) All staff were so friendly, helpful and professional. The gentleman who took us around the exhibits was very knowledgeable and explained clearly about the design and manufacture of the textiles on display., The security man at the gate was helpful in calling us a tuk tuk for our return journey. And the textile bracelets for sale were reasonably priced. The display itself is well laid out and documented in English. The fabrics from Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Myanmar and India were intricate in design and showed the differences in design from each region.

Beautiful building, very informative guide and the most wonderful textiles.
Really enjoyed our visit and so glad we came
Maybe not the sort of thing that youngsters would enjoy, but if you like quality fabrics this is a must!

Amazing! - One of the best museums iv been to all trip! I think it’s a must while in Siem reap. It’s so interesting learning about the textiles and how they are made but most importantly the culture that they represent. Is outside of the town centre but 100% worth the tuk tuk. The owner and the woman who showed us around were so kind and informative, they really made the experience special.
