Brought one of our travelers, 6 yr. old to show him dinosaur info. It could benefit from more children related display. However dinosaur discovery information and displays were informative for adults.

This would be an impressive personal collection but a museum it does not make. The trip advisor system of stars is not really relevant as 5 stars in Laos is like negative 94 in New York. They have done the best with what they have...More
