This was an extremely neat location. We spent a few hours here and liked the gorgeous and picturesque royal temple as well as the palace grounds as well as museum. Certainly worth the time. It was extremely traditional and was intriguing, but appeared to be...More

The Royal Palace museum has a prominent architecture, next to the night market and is very visible from Mount Phousi across the road. We didn't enter the palace but viewed it from outside.

It should be an essential experience for everyone visiting Luang Prabang. The grounds of the old palace/National Museum are gorgeous with the Hor Pha Bang Temple one of the defining and dominating skyline structures in the old capital. Unfortunately we didn’t get to inside the...More

This ex-palace of the last King of Lao is modest by western standards except for the reception room that was lavishly decorated by the last King’s son in anticipation of his coronation (which ultimately, was never to be). It is co-located with a stunning Buddhist...More

The last 2 Kings and their families of the former Kingdom of Laos resided here. Nice gardens and good late 1800s French colonial architecture. Self guided is adequate with the limited legends displayed. Royal car exhibition in the back garage is an added bonus

I love history, and this museum contains a plethora of historical artifacts. I spent about three hours here and enjoyed it very much.

We were lucky to visit the Royal Palace just before leaving Luang Prabang, since the opening hours are somehow limited. It offers the opportunity to receive a quick lesson of Laotian history.

Great museum, good history on Laos and some of the folk stories. You walk around the museum through gold gilded visiting rooms, past the King and Queen's bedrooms, reading rooms, a room full of gifts to Laos including a boomerang from Oz, doesn't say who...More
