When we arrived at this building, we were directed to a lesser building on the other side of the street. Here, we found a display of Lao natural history and pre-history. And then a military section about the struggles against various invaders and oppressors during...More

This museum is housed in a large impressive building in central Vientinane. The museum displays photos and exhibits depicting the history of the Lao People's Security Forces. Visit if in the area.

This is a grand building however not sure when its open if at all. Area seemed unused for a while going by the litter around it. This building is worth the look as it is nothing like any of the others in Vientiance

Great place to get a different view on history and Lao culture. Not far out of town and probably takes an hour to tour. Worth it.
