A small exhibition room with information placards around the room, and plenty of unexploded & disarmed ordinance on display. I especially liked seeing the cluster bomb on display to really get an understanding of what it is and what destruction it caused. This is an...More

This is a great little museum that'll take less than an hour. It tells an important story that affects the Lao people to this day. Everyone (particularly Americans, like me) going through Luang Prabang should stop here.

I'd no clue about these facts! I liked the learning experience, though really disappointed in the specifics! Extremely informative and worth the trip for a' donation'!!

It’s a little unfortunate this centre is located a little ways off from the more popular spots in LP, otherwise it might have more visitors because it’s certainly worth a visit. Located within a small compound, the centre is mainly a small screening room and...More

This was one of the most educational centres I have been to - and really opened our eyes to the history and struggle of a country you don't hear about much. We were a large group of noisy students, but we were all silenced at...More

The name of museum, the location, and frankly the upkeep of this museum all leave a little to be desired but the message it sends hits the mark. The ‘secret war’ we Americans waged on Laos in the course of the Vietnam war continues to...More

A small visitor centre but explanatory. The short video in the theatre on demand is brutal but says it all.

Although a little out of town away from the main tourist drag this is definitely worth a visit. I had no idea that Unexploded bombs were causing so many deaths in this country after so long.

It might be a little visitor centre, though it's loaded with information that is essential to learn about Laos. We took the time of ours to search through the well displayed historical past and present information about UXO's and also liked the short video they...More

What a fantastic job this organisation does and has done for years clearing unexploded bombs and mines. It's only a small place, but very interesting and well worth a visit. There's a film show that lasts about 30 minutes, which also shows the terrible impact...More
