The People Security Museum
The People’s Security Museum in Vientiane was established to promote the 50th anniversary of founding the Lao People’s Security Forces in 1961 and to recognize the dedication of Lao leaders and warriors who fought for the country. It also aims to make the Lao People’s Security Forces known both regionally and internationally. The Museum used to be a part of the Lao People’s Army History Museum but in 2005 the two became separate entities. The museum displays permanent galleries depicting the founding and history of the public security force as well as the Ministry of Public Security. Explained are their activities on political-social and regional peace keeping missions as well as their international relationship with other international organizations. To date, there are more than 8000 photos and objects in the museum.
How to get there: The Museum is located on Kaysone Phomvihane Road about 3 kilometers from the Central Bus Station between the T-Junction from That Luang Stupa.
