Small and curious bit more than 2 little room with local fossils as you would expect in this sleepy town of Savannakhet. More for educational purposes than real natural science museum in the West. $1.25 worthlessness to spend and contemplate the quietness

I visited this place with a high expectation because I'm Vietnamese and of course never seen before. Collection of the fossils is extremely diverse. Current status now in the museum quite low-invested. But tour guide is great of his knowledge he shared to us.

Brought one of our travelers, 6 yr. old to show him dinosaur info. It could benefit from more children related display. However dinosaur discovery information and displays were informative for adults.

This would be an impressive personal collection but a museum it does not make. The trip advisor system of stars is not really relevant as 5 stars in Laos is like negative 94 in New York. They have done the best with what they have...More
