Explore one of the greatest empires of all time in our international feature exhibition Angkor: The Lost Empire of Cambodia.
Discover the scientific advances in ground excavations, aerial mapping, and modern remote sensing, that are helping experts develop a greater understanding of the vast scope and accomplishments of this fascinating empire.
Angkor’s empire and enormous monuments to the gods are known as some of the most remarkable achievements in human history. Impressive temples like Angkor Wat towered over immense cities constructed from wood; cities that have all but vanished.
See over 120 objects and treasures, many of which are on tour for the first time, through a lens of science and discovery. Marvel at the early symbolism of relics and sculptures and learn about the dynamic peoples behind the historic metropolis—a complex society of ruling class, priests, and talented craftsmen.
Meanwhile, immersive multimedia elements like visual and aerial imagery convey Angkor’s vast beauty. As always, you’ll also find ways to feed your curiosity with hands-on, interactive activities like building a temple, touching a sculpture, or flexing your archaeological detective skills.
Cette exposition est offerte en anglais et en français.
Tickets to Angkor: The Lost Empire of Cambodia are included with General Admission.

Looking Beyond the Temples: The People of Angkor

All Ages (12+ Recommended)
The Angkor civilization was the major regional power in Southeast Asia from the 9th to 15th centuries and one of the largest preindustrial settlements in the world. Angkor’s temples, statues, inscriptions, and archaeology have been the focus of more than a century of study.
However, few scholars have examined the lives of the people who built the temples, kept the shrines running, produced the food, and managed the water.
Join us on March 28 for a lecture from Dr. Alison Carter from the University of Oregon, to learn about the daily lives and activities of the ancient Angkorian people.
