Totally loved the experience here! I was able to gain knowledge about Laos in this center. They even had a Japanese version of the broucher with all the information written! They also had a cute shop and cafe, which let you hang around and enjoy the art crafts and drinks.
An absolutely fabulous center to learn about the cultures and many tribes of Laos. The collection was well organized. I appreciated the information regarding the traditional music. From craftsman who currently make the different instruments from hand, to the explanation of how and when these instruments are played. The weaving exhibit was also well organized. Definitely a must visit cultural center when visiting Luang Prabang.
