Leave your shoes and bags (in locker) at the door and don't take photos. The museum is interesting, but slightly mysterious if you don't read Laotian or English.
It's amusing to see the gifts of foreign countries. In terms of quality, the French and Chinese win, I think, but those of the US and Canada are hopeless - but then, of course, the US made Laos the most bombed country in history during the Vietnam war - and unexploded bombs are still turning-up. ( Per Wiki - "It has been reported that Laos was hit by an average of one B‑52 bombload every eight minutes, 24 hours a day, between 1964 and 1973. U.S. bombers dropped more ordnance on Laos in this period than was dropped during the whole of the World War II. Of the 260 million bombs that rained down, particularly on Xiangkhouang Province on the Plain of Jars, some 80 million failed to explode, leaving a deadly legacy. Laos is the most heavily bombed country, per capita, in the world. )
So, worth seeing, but for Americans a little humility might be in order.
