Their permanent exhibitions explores the four major ethnic minority groups and the museum always features a temporary exhibition of special interest.

The collection of items on display were all obtained via direct contact with villagers and include traditional clothing, religious artifacts, tools and handicrafts. The displays are accompanied by information in Lao, French and English that helps to explain their significance.

This may be a small museum, but they’ve got a big heart, with all proceeds going toward researching and preserving Northern Lao culture. Many items in the museum shop are sourced directly from local artisans from these cultures.

The museum also has an excellent collection of academic literature which you’re welcome to page through.

Of particular interest are the costumes of the various different ethnic groups throughout Laos.
