The Lao National History Museum is housed in the same French colonial building where the country’s independence was declared. This building was previously used as the French Governor’s residence. The museum is host to around 8000 artefacts denoting Laos’ history from its origins to the freedom struggle in the 70s. The ground floor has displays of dinosaur bones, pottery shards and Khmer sculptures belonging to ancient Laos. In the subsequent floors, you will see artefacts from the Siamese invasions and French colonial period. An important part of the exhibits falls under the American military presence and the Vietnam War. This may be one of the reasons why the museum was formerly the Lao revolutionary museum.
