A small but informative museum on tribal Life and music. Gives a nice look at the differences of peoples in Laos and their traditions. For the size very well done. more »
The museum itself was nice and informative but I felt that the admission fee of 25K was a bit high for the size of this museum. That said, you could learn about the different minorities that dominate Laos, and this museum focuses on a few of them and showcases their culture. Would recommend this place to anyone who's interested in culture.
Absolutely worth a visit! One of the only places I would describe as a museum in Laos, and very interesting and informative at that. While it isn't very large, it is still gives more information on the culture of Laos than pretty much anywhere else we went. They also have a gift shop with hand made items, which is also worth a visit. Highly recommend.
