Many large paintings representing Laotian people. Large dimly lit hall. Note that the current picture (pink building) is NOT this attraction. Location: Khoun Boulom Road immediately east of Chao Anou Road

This centre showcases Lao artists and their paintings and artwork. This is the place to go to discover the future of Laotian art and maybe buy a painting at a reasonable price.

Works by many local artists including etchings and lithographs at affordable prices. Easy location to reach and find; inside a little dusty. Requires some time to sift through the many works on sale.

We've only visited once so aren't in a position to comment on changes. As I mentioned in my review in July, it's primarily a large hall with huge paintings of Laos scenes on all sides.
