I knew the history of the "secret war" before going to Laos, however it was still interesting to see the centre. Loads of books to read, information to absorb and some gifts to buy to help support them. In the centre of town to easy to get to.

The centre has handicrafts, gifts and photos describing the ongoing plight of the thousands of people who are daily affected by unexploded bombs. Heart wrenching.

The information in the museum was well laid out, informative and moving. There are three different films shown daily that are free. We went to the 6.30pm 'Bombies' film which was very moving and upsetting but it's important to know what happened and is still happening to the Laos victims of illegal US bombings.

Did not know before just how much Laos was bombed. Ordnance on dis[lay with informative talk. Not a large display but the effect is there. Only 1% has been cleared from the country.

This is a small place in the heart of the Guesthouses and thoroughly worth a visit. It only needs 10-15 minutes but the information is well presented to help you understand this region of Laos. It is free but you can make a purchase or a donation to help. They also show 3 documentaries from 4pm (we didn't have time... More

laos is one of the countries where the USA committed terrible war crimes by bombing a country they were not even at war. and they did nothing since to make up for their injustice. the UXO visitor center is very small but shows you lots of grenade shells, pictures and videos that are difficult to see - yet they display...

Before we arrived in Laos we had no idea how bad the war was for this country. In Luang Prabang or Vientiane you will hear about it, but the visit to the area of Phonsavan makes history come alive. Don´t expect a flashy visitor center, it is basic with pictures and some exhibits, but they show an excellent english 1... More
