I was there at 3:30-4pm. And it was close. I remembered that you close at 6pm on Saturday. I'm not sure. The notice was too small for me to see. But as of 21April, it was close.

Everyone visiting Vientaine/ Laos should be aware of this place and whey it is around. The history of the USA and Laos is often ignored but it is very important to see what has happened and learn from our mistakes. Truly eyeopening!

They do an extremely important job. Worth a visit if you want to understand what happened to the country under the Vietnam war and the consequences the people still have to cope with. The staff is helpful and keen to answer all questions.
