Explore a French colonial-era structure turned into a national museum at Royal Palace Museum. Built in 1904 for King Sisavang Vong, the palace served as a residence for the royal family until the overthrow of monarchy by communists. The structure contains a mix of traditional Lao motifs and the French Beaux Arts architectural elements. As you pass the entrance made of Italian marble, notice the variety of religious objects, paintings, and other diplomatic gifts decorating the palace's lavish halls. Besides the main building, you can also examine several buildings on the palace grounds, including the conference hall, kitchen, staff headquarters, and a lotus pond.

The National Museum is basically not more than a reflection of the gifts the King got, the rooms he and his family lived in and some clothes he was wearing. All is nicely arranged actually. However, if you miss it, no need to worry.
