This museum is big but not so interesting. The objects here is boring. But this is a good place to hide away the heat outside :)

This would be an impressive personal collection but a museum it does not make. The trip advisor system of stars is not really relevant as 5 stars in Laos is like negative 94 in New York. They have done the best with what they have...More

We spent five to ten minutes exploring the only two rooms of the 'museum' while the half-dozen staff members chatted amongst themselves. A guide would have been useful, as most of the information was written in Lao and French. A little overpriced at 10K kip.

As or other reviews this tony museum only just big enough to accommodate the wonderful stuff they have - why oh why (I muttered to myself all the way around) didn't they at least translate the great French posters into Lao? English would be lovely...More
