I took my family here as I had heard it was well worth visiting - not because I was particularly interested in dinosaurs! Although difficult to find - or to try to explain it to a tuk tuk driver, it is worth spending some time...More

It's not much, but it's about 15 minutes of interesting. It's small, compact and all in French. Enjoy!

We spent five to ten minutes exploring the only two rooms of the 'museum' while the half-dozen staff members chatted amongst themselves. A guide would have been useful, as most of the information was written in Lao and French. A little overpriced at 10K kip.

I had been seeing images of dinosaurs on everything relating to Savannakhet so I was curious to check out the museum. It was 10,000 kip/person and took about 15 minutes to walk through. There wasn't too much inside but why not just stop in? There...More

Nice little "museum" for 20 minutes :) Only 2 rooms. Most of signs are in Franch not English so tourists from France can understand more :) Allowed to touch some dinosaurs bones - maybe it is most interesting part
