The 'Angkor Panorama Museum' is a brand new museum designed to celebrate the history of the Angkor Wat temple in Siem Reap, Cambodia. While the construction of the museum has been subject to much controversy, the content inside provides a revolutionary way for visitors to learn about the history of the ancient temple.

The Angkor Panorama Museum is designed to display the history of Angkor Wat through a series of interactive displays and immersive artwork. The most impressive piece in the museum is a 360 degree panoramic display that depicts a 12th-century Angkorian battle. The museum also shows 3D movies that detail the evolution of the Khmer Empire, the construction of the temple and the daily life of the Cambodian people.

With more tourists visiting Angkor Wat each year, the museum helps to strengthen the tourist industry in Siem Reap.
