The Champasak Historical Heritage Museum has a few artefacts and a lot of boring documents chronicling the history of the province. Once you get past the Lao and Communist hammer-and-sickle flags at the entrance you’re in the best part of the museum – three very old Dong Son bronze drums and striking 7th-century sandstone lintels found at Uo Moung (Tomo Temple). The simple textile and jewellery collection from the Nyaheun, Suay and Laven groups is also interesting for its large iron ankle bracelets and ivory ear plugs since these are rarely worn nowadays.
