Well worth the time to visit and learn the history of the Vietnam and secret wars and the bombing and devastation inflicted upon Laos and its people. Quite distressing and upsetting to learn of the facts around this and what is still being done today...More

Museums like this shouldn't need to exist. This one quietly raises awareness of the ongoing issue of landmines and how lives today are still affected. Try to go if you can.

Came here with almost no knowledge of the UXO problem Laos faces and came away wondering why the world barely knows anything about this. Shocked that it still kills/ injures someone everyday. Its only a small Museum, but will impact you greatly. Worth a visit.
