Fodor's Review

A two-story French colonial building houses this well-laid-out museum with interesting geological and historical displays. Exhibits touch on Laos's royal past, its colonial years, and its struggle for liberation. Other highlights include details about the country's 50 main ethnic groups, along with indigenous instruments that illustrate how they made music.
