Cambodia’s Currency: Past to Present

Delve into 2,000 years of socio-economic history at the fascinating SOSORO Museum in Phnom Penh. Located in the heart of the capital in a heritage building that was a former town hall residence, this intriguing attraction features interactive exhibits and multimedia presentations focused on the crucial importance of money in building the country’s independence and sovereignty.

SOSORO has been designed to provide a unique perspective on Cambodia’s history, with an insight on the constant interaction between money, the economy and politics.
