Lonely Planet review
This museum has a few interesting artefacts, including three very old Dong Son bronze drums, a Siam-style sandstone Buddha head dating to the 7th century and striking 7th-century sandstone lintels found at Uo Moung . 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.
Also on display are musical instruments, stelae in Tham script dating from the 15th to 18th centuries, a water jar from the 11th or 12th century, a small lingam (Shiva phallus), a scale model of Wat Phu Champasak, and some American UXOs (unexploded ordnances) and other weaponry.
