Interesting enough to stop by this village

We actually went to not the official tour info center, but a roadside stop that showed how people make various implements out of the bomb materials. Very interesting to watch the process. Also chance to take something big/small with you as a souvenir made out of bomb material

I had booked an excellent personal (motor)tour with Mr. VONGSAVATH DIUANGDARA [douangdara_vong@yahoo.com], Diuangsaichy Travel, (guided by fluent English speaker LIEN) and our first stop was at this rather prominent building.
Even though it was initially locked up, the real attraction for me was the easily accessible backside, with an array of some of the various armaments used during the “Secret War”/Second Indochina War. Whilst the weapons of are merely gruesome tools in an extremely ugly aspect of Humanity vs. Humanity, I continue to be mystified-and horrified—by what we do to each other.
Anyway, once open, I was able to peruse the severely limited content, signing in and picking up a couple of fliers regarding the area. It was a pretty good introduction to what I was about to experience.

Great souveniers

This is a shop/information centre that has locally made in Laos souveniers, which help local villagers & villages. A great place to buy something truly authentic

Mediocre

We went here so that the driver could get his car permit registered for the trip.
The displays are poor. The items on sale just stuffed in cabinets. Did not see any prices or sales person around. Would not visit again.

Information and Authorization Center

Tours from Phonsavan, at least the official ones, make a stop here before going on to the Plain of Jars Sites - at least that's what we were told. The Info center is housed in a residential looking building. There is some information/exhibits on the secret war and the Plain of Jars. And, a small collection of unexploded ordnance in the backyard.

Could have been better

My guide took me here at the start of a tour. UXE in the back yard was interesting. Exhibits inside were pretty lame. Staff required visitors to fill out a personal questionnaire. Skip this place if you have other stops.

Lots of room for improvement.

This information office does not provide much in the way of information, maps or guides.

There is very little to do in phonsavan apart from the jars. So drop in here to fill 15 mins.

This place is completly organise to give you the governement propaganda. It's interesting to learn about US bombardment in the area against Pathet Lao and Vietnamese army during the war.
Negative : it's not in the city center
C'est un lieux organiser pour donner la parole officiel et la propagande gouvernementale. C'est intéressant pour apprendre comment la zone a été bombardée par les américains dans le but d'attaque le Pathet Lao et l'armée vietnamienne.
