Inauguration of the sub-regional exhibition “Our Common Heritage: Exploring World Heritage Sites of Cambodia, Laos and Viet Nam”


Inviting museum visitors and tourists on an imaginary itinerary along the six UNESCO World Heritage sites of Angkor, Preah Vihear, Vat Phou, My Son, the Ho Citadel and the Thang Long Citadel to highlight the interconnections of these sites and populations, in addition to the role of Southeast Asia in global history. This exhibition at the Preah Norodom Sihanouk-Angkor Museum is the first to be inaugurated amongst the project participating 9 regional site-related museums, in timing with the high-level upcoming meeting of the International Cooperation in Cambodia (ICC).
This exhibition is one of nine sub-regional exhibitions that are realized under the UNESCO/Japanese funds-in-trust Project “Revitalizing World Heritage Site related Museums in Cambodia, Laos and Viet Nam” and is the result of the intense cooperation and development by the project participants following the first and second workshops.

The panels developed by the Preah Norodom Sihanouk-Angkor Museum centres around the theme of the historical context and discovery of the “274 Buddhist statues from Banteay Kdei in Angkor”. They follow the common themes developed by UNESCO and experts on “Natural World” and “Trade and Exchange”. More information of the sub-regional exhibition can be found in the dedicated UNESCO webpage.
