The palace is well maintained and the exhibits are neatly displayed. The exterior is less "grand" compared to the Bangkok Palace

Its an elegant, understated building with some interesting artefacts. It belongs on a complete itinerary of Luang Prabang but if you don't have time I wouldn't be too worried. But not a bad way to spend an hour. It definitely helps if you have read...More

It was important for us to visit this museum in order to understand the situation of the Royal family in Laos and the last King.

This museum is extremely interesting and very affordable. It is very much about the royal family of Laos and I love the artefacts but most importantly for me was the stories that the rooms in the old palace told of the families and the history....More

This museum is essentially a good historical memento for those who want to see how Lao royalty (the last king, Savang Vatthana) lived. There are no spectacular archeological or artistic exhibits (indeed, the palace itself is relatively simple) , but for those interested in history,...More

We visited the museum. You need to come covered . Shoulders and knees . You can see the history of the last kings. It's nice and well preserved . No pictures allowed . You have to store your bag. A must visit

It's a great place to escape the sweltering heat in Laos. Overall a great place, however if not for my guide that was leading the group, I would have missed out on a fair bit of history and knowledge of the exhibits in the museum....More

Good visit and articles but why the dress code for the museum? Also, the history is limited to last century. Okay if you have time but not a must see.

Worthy of a visit, but take a guide so you have a much stronger appreciation of the history of Laos.
