If you are in Mukdahan check out this museum and viewing tower. Note they are currently (August 2018) erecting scaffolding so watch your head. Check that they are open before visiting, since the renovation may effect their opening hours. If you do show up and...More

A surprising find, this is a museum of the local culture, and gives in Thai and English some nice information about the area and peoples. There are also a number of artefacts, and a temple at the top. Mostly, go for the view which is...More

It really annoys me that foreigners are singled out for discriminatory pricing and this happens at the tower. Concrete structure is now drab and windows for the lookout are dirty. Haphazard collection of stuff downstairs but interesting information on the East West economic corridor.

A number of historical and ethnically diverse displays inside. High enough for views to Savanakhet. Not the best maintained and could offer more to the visitor.

30 bhatt for Thais and 50 for us would have not minded paying it I'd they bothered to clean the windows on the 6th and 7th floor it's OK for the first time for some pic's but pic's would be better with clean windows
