Close to Siem Reap’s airport lies a 3D art museum called Art Box Siem Reap. I have always been curious to see what lies inside. The museum is only a year old and very large. Inspired by trick art museums in South Korea, this one displays wall paintings that you place yourself in and take a photo. Due to the perspective of the painting, it looks like you are actually in the artwork.

The Art Box has many different themed room including dinosaurs, the Seven Wonders of the World, famous paintings, and more. It even has an entire room dedicated to Angkor Wat in different seasons which was well done.

Other than a few local tourists, it was just Anna and I inside the museum. Our tuck tuck driver also decided to join us as well because he had never been before. While inside, I was very surprised to stumble upon a group of young monks taking photos. I never would have expected that!

Overall, it was lots of fun and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! The entrance is $15 for tourists which is quite expensive and the local price is $5.
