About the tour:
The civilisation of Angkor left an artistic legacy that lives on most spectacularly in its architecture and sculpture. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the archaeological complexes are today acknowledged as great masterpieces. But until the late 19th century, they were virtually unknown to the outside world.

In this ACM exhibition, Angkor: Exploring Cambodia’s Sacred City, visitors will see rare Khmer sculptures, along with French drawings, photographs, and memorabilia that tell the story of the French encounter with Angkor and its sensational emergence onto the international stage. The Asian Civilisations Museum presents this exhibition in major collaboration with the Guimet Museum in Paris.
