I discovered that Laos got bombarded by USA during the Vietnam war, in the attempt to kill the Vietcong travelling from North to South Vietnam on the Ho chi minh trail. I was not aware of this "secret war" and I feel very sorry for the consequences that innocent people had to pay and still pay due to the war.

Go there and learn something about the history of the country you are traveling trough! It doesn't take much time and you can learn a lot. Please leave some money there as a donation cause the museum is for free.

Suoer interesting museum. Learnt so much about the u.s involved conflict here and the insane amount of bombs dropped over Laos, which still affect the population today. Great video at the end going into more detail. Fascinating and appealing at the same time

The films that educate Lao children are very good and also Paul Wager's photos.Actually seeing the inside of a cluster bomb explains a lot.

Informative displays and film examining the awful legacy of a war that ended over 30 years ago. Well-worth a visit.

This small museum was a real eye-opener for me as an American. I had no idea of the devastation we had caused Laos. I also had no idea how many people mostly children are still being killed by landmines and cluster bombs. Make sure and watch the two videos that they have in the back room. The museum is a... More

its true that history depends on the point of view its written from ... the amount of landmines, bombies and bombs that LDR witnessed at the hands of USA is appalling ... i wish the least they would do is help them repair the damages they have inflicted.

Never been up close to a cluster bomb before, in fact thankfully I've never been up close to any bombs! So visiting this centre was quite upsetting and shocking to see the huge size of some of the murderous metal that was dropped by the Americans on the poor people of Lao. Go and learn!

It was a relief to get away from the spas, cafes and guest houses to a spot where normal Lao live and work. For the first time in our five day stay here, I got a little lost finding the UXO Laos Visitor Center. A very nice woman greeted us and spent some time answering our questions. As other reviewers...
