The National Khmer Legacy Museum is a proud project of the IKARE.
In 2014, a group of Khmer veterans wanted to bring smiles, hope, and pride to the Khmer people everywhere. They wanted to protect and preserve the rich history of the Khmer people for generations to come. These Freedom Fighters wanted Cambodia to be seen as more than just a “Killing Field”. They wanted people to celebrate the importance of the Khmer people and the long, rich history of a Kingdom that not only brought the world one of the largest and most advanced civilizations in human history but also introduced the world to the number 0, a number that continues to contribute to the advancement of science and humanity.
The world's largest religious monument ( ANGKOR WAT ) and the world's oldest evidence of the number zero are both found in Cambodia today. In order to preserve and document the unique journey of the Khmer people, the museum provides visitors with the experience to journey through thousands of years of Khmer history in a day.
