Luang Prabang, Laos

The Royal Palace Museum in Luang Prabang, Laos is located in the center of town on Sisavangvong Road, north of Phousi Hill. The museum was build by the French for the King to enhance the relationship in 1904 during Sisavangvong’s reign.

It was converted into a Museum in 1976, just one year prior to the Lao revolution. Presently, it displays things that were used during the reign such as gifts from neighboring countries. Also on display are the Reception Room, the Thrown Room, and various Bed Chambers. Next to the main building is the Royal Car Exhibition Hall and the permanent exhibition about the Meditation of Sangha Luang Prabang, where you can learn about the meditation process of Lao Buddhist monks. It is claimed that some monks can levitate whilst in meditation.

In front of the Museum is the Haw Prabang, a small ornate pavillion where they intend to keep Prabang for the future. It was designed by the royal architect and paid for by donations from people within and outside of Laos.

The Royal Palace Museum opens from 8:00 am to 11:00 am, and 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm.
