An absolute must see when you are in Vientiane. It has excellent information on the history and the struggle with the aftermath.... The theater shows some great movies on different topics related to the COPE center itself.

A very well set out and educational centre for physical rehab from landmine incidents in Laos. There are videos and small exhibits about prosthetic limbs helping the community.

A "must see" for in Vientiane for those wanting to understand the challenges the people of Laos have (and continue to) face. Very thought provoking and educational. Shocking to learn the impact that bombs have had on these wonderful people.
