The Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre (TAEC) features a small but fascinating exhibit that provides insight into the living cultures of four ethnic groups in Laos – the Akha, (H)mong, Tai Dam, and Kmhmu. What I like about the museum is the interactivity it provides visitors with some of the exhibits.
Admission. 25,000 kip ($3). If you are planning on trekking to the hilltribe villages near Luang Prabang, it’s best to visit this museum first. There’s also an activity area for children, so this will be a nice place to bring kids to learn about the ethnic tribes of Laos.
