5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Never knew that Loas was the most bombed country in the world. soo much damage was done in that war , and they do a great job helping the population. Watch a video, make a donation, we did and you should do the same....

“PLEASE PLEASE VISIT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We came across this on TripAdvisor, and as there isn't that much to do in Vientiane, we decided to check it out!
So glad we did - very informative through use of visual aids (several documentaries constantly playing and the virtual tour is great)
The organisation is very inspiring and i urge more people to visit and support such a wonderful team.

“Very sobering but a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Although small the visitor centre is packed with information and displays all of which have been thoughtfully and brilliantly put together. The film is a must see and really his home the message about the ongoing struggle to clear cluster bombs from Laos. There was a young man there who had survived a cluster bomb explosion who gave us great insight and plenty to ponder about how lucky we are. A must see place that will leave you with plenty to think about.

“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

A really moving and informative display and an opportunity (with no pressure) to make what for most of us is a small donation that can change someone's life. Entry is free so go even if you have no cash to spare.

“The most interesting thing in Vientiene - give yourself plenty of time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

This place is small, but great. There's lots to look at, so give yourself some time to sit down and listen & watch the real life stories - very moving.
