Built in 1904 as the home of King Sisavong Vang and his family, the royal palace has since been converted into a museum. The Lao lifestyle of the early 20th century is well preserved through art and architecture, and the Buddhist relics of former monarchs demonstrate the country’s most avidly followed faith. The theatre, royal apartments, and music room are some of the museum’s main attractions.
