The museum shows how opulent royal family lived during the times they ruled Laos. The structures are beautifully restored. However, having a guide just brought way more insight into the traditions of the royal family. It is located in city centre so easy to walk...More

We walked around the grounds and into the temples. You need to take your shoes off to enter any of the buildings. There was a small fee to walk around. The temples were a place of beauty. Mosaic walls and many statues. If you want...More

The Royal Palace - built in 1904 for King Sisavang Vong - is a cross between the typical Luang Prabang architecture and French style. The rooms are well preserved and give insight into the lives of the royals. There are several outlying buildings that are...More

Marvellous to walk through the rooms of the royals. A bit more about what happened to them would have been nice but really lovely

Be sure to go early to this and other 'around town' walks and sites. Nice sense of history. Luang Prabang is a lovely place, laid back!

A great place to visit to learn all about the previous kings and history. Lots of artefacts and things to see. The Japanese mosaic type glass walls are absolutely amazing to see. So pleased we visited this.

The temple is quite beautiful and amazing! It's in a very good condition. I've been not in the museum just outside watching the nice buildings and gardens. There is also an exhibition with the old cars of the king, interesting!

Considering the price, we were disappointed at the lack of information provided and weren’t even allowed to go inside the temple - we could only look outside. The museum was quite interesting and the grounds were nice to walk around, however we were just expecting...More
