Coming here was a great choice. It’s very educational on the lasting effects that the U.S. bombing has had on Laos and its people. It’s very sad, but necessary to go to and learn about. There are a multitude of recovered bombs, bombies, and cluster...More

Must see reminder of the bombing of the past in Laos. Tragic but informative. Still 300 injuries per year. 60,000 plus bombs and land mines removed yearly.

A very interesting (although quite small) museum about the present day effects of a largely secret bombing campaign by the US which remains unknown in most countries. We especially liked the video room which showed documentaries and Laotian public service messages.

Despite enquiring as to its location from the Travel Information Centre, we asked locals who had never heard of the place. Fortunately, we met another lost soul who had just been, and she directed us well. Unfortunately, there was a power cut when there, so...More
