This centre is very small but very informative on unexploded objects & the bombing history of Laos. We were also shown 2 videos about landmines and children. This place should be a MUST to see while in Luang Prabang.

Tucked a little way from the market centre, I was first struck by the variety of bombs, rockets, grenades, artillery munitions, mortars, etc with info-boards describing the damage upon detonation. I found this unassuming place very informative and sobering. Do watch the short movie (25...More

The UXO Museum is a very touching and realistic account of the travesty that Laos faced years ago. While the museum is not large, the images and artifacts there describe the pain the country faced and hardships they face today because of it. Growing up...More

We had already visited the COPE Centre in Vientiane. The visit to this centre added to our knowledge of the atrocities of the unexploded ordnances still existing in many areas of Laos. If more people visited these centre and pressured their governments to help more,...More

We learned alot we didn't know, both about Laos and USA. A horrible piece of history that shouldn't be forgotten. Also great to see the work that's being done and something well worth donating something for considering the exhibition is free.

A great way to learn a little about the devastating impact of America's "secret" bombing mission in the 60s and 70s. There is a movie that plays on a loop and many informative exhibits. A must-see while in Luang Prabang, especially for Americans.

I had no idea about these facts! I enjoyed the learning experience, although very disappointed in the facts! Very educational and well worth the visit for a 'donation'!!

A little difficult to find as the local maps are a little confusing but so worth the effort. History will show that Laos was the most bombarded country ever, I do hope this type of war never happens again. 200 million tons of bombs dropped...More
