Lao National Culture Hall
Impressive, but underused
What we say:
The palatial building opposite the National Museum on Samsenthai Rd is the unfortunately underused National Culture Hall which opened in 2000.
Grant money from China paid for its construction, but the Culture Hall has no budget of its own to put on any cultural events and simply acts as a venue for visiting performers and exhibitions. The rare times that the building is open to the public there will be an event listing in the Vientiane Times.
