Attapeu Provincial Museum

Bolaven Plateau Region

This large, elegant building holds a small collection of rural and tribal artefacts, tools such as a rice husker, models of various kinds of tribal houses and some weapons, as well as countless photos of local dignitaries. It's worth a peek if you have nothing else to do, although bear in mind that the building does leak badly in heavy rain.
