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.

These royals were quite low key and the palace a real family home . What happened to them I wonder? Worth spending a few hours in the complex

I visited the Royal Palace on an afternoon tour of UNESCO listed Luang Prabang by Lao Green Travel which operates electric driven, eco-friendly open mini buses. The Royal Palace you see today (Haw Kham the Golden Hall) was built between 1904 and 1909 and blends Laotian and French Beaux arts architecture. It became the new official royal residence for the monarchs until the last King passed away in 1969. In 1976 it was converted into a museum just one tear prior to the Lao revolution. I was fascinated with the building and its displays and my English speaking guide explained the history. Like another reviewer I was very interested to see the gifts other countries had presented to the Lao Kings in particular a model of the lunar module and a piece of moon rock presented by US President Richard Nixon. Definitely worth a visit but please note photography is not allowed inside.
