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

Always thought that the about the plight of the Vietnamese and Cambodians refugees but didn't realize that the Lao people have suffered so much as well -... More

A little time spent here is quite sobering and the films are worth viewing,a donation to this cause is certainly put to good use.

UXO Laos is slowly undoing the damage done in the American/Vietnamese war. Over 80 million tonnes of unexploded ordnance remains in Laos and UXO Laos are gradually clearing it. I'd say they have well in excess of 1600 years work to do at current rates, so support them if you can!

I agree with previous posts that it looks like this is mostly about the 'MAG' organization. Definitely visit to learn about the impact UXO (unexploded ordnance) has on every day life and how it prevents lots of people (specially farmers) to get out of poverty.
