Only a small museum but concisely explains all about UXO and their effects on the people of Laos. The video presentation is also very informative. It is a moving place to visit and helps you understand the history of Laos. Worth a trip.

A mutual blogger recommended I take a visit to the centre. Yes it's small, but what an impact! It was humbling to learn the history behind the bombings in the last 50 odd years - one cannot fathom the devastation this country has seen. If...More
