Kaysone PHOMVIHANE Museum
The President Kaysone Phomvihane Memorial Museum in Vientiane, Laos opened in December 2000 and is managed by the Central Committee of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party LPRP. The museum was established to give honor to Lao’s great revolutionary leader and former President Kaysone Phomvihane. The museum mainly received financial assistance from Vietnam Government. The exterior of the building is designed in Lao traditional style while the interior design is similar to the Ho Chi Minh Museum in Ha Noi. There are two floors: the upper floor contains exhibitions including a photo exhibit about his life and about the Lao revolutionary history.
Note: The displays don’t currently have English or French translations; the lower floor contains meeting rooms and a shop selling books and souvenirs.
