The COPE Visitor Centre tells the story of Laos' unexploded ordnance, and its devastating ramifications, so well. It's a tragic story, but it's told in an engaging, insightful and helpful way. It's only a small building, but you can easily spend more than an hour...More

A good place to visit in order to grasp just how much the country was bombed during the Vietnam war and the brutal repercussions of such action. The centre is rather small and one can manage a tour in thirty minutes. On a hot day,...More

We visited the COPE museum and were blown away by what we saw and learned about the devastating results that unexploded ordinance from the Vietnam war had on the Lao people. It still affects them today as thousands of bombs dropped by the USA lay...More
