A must see when in Vientiane. Great exhibition, well thought out and put together. An interesting and humbling insight into the problems surrounding UXOs, and inspiring survivor stories.

Amazing work they are doing here. The information is enlightening to read. We donated and bought some of the delicious home made ice cream. All for a good cause.

A small but well set up exhibition which will shock you with the extent of what has happened in Laos. It's a really great cause and everyone should make time for a visit.

This is a relatively small visitor centre but does give a fair oversight of the effect that the Vietnam War had (and continues to have) on Laos. If in Vientiane it is worth a visit but you don't need to allocate more than a couple...More
