Everyone should visit the Center to learn about the secret war and consequences. People are still suffering from the cluster bombs and the Center is one of the organizations helping them. They are doing the work which the countries responsible for that should done!

The COPE center does a good job in trying to provide prosthetic limbs to victims of explosions, accidents, & congenital malformations. Their exhibit on the issues associated with cluster bombs from the Vietnam War is educational, albeit sad.

The COPE Visitor Centre is helping people, damaged by land mines and other nasty results of the Vietnam war. You can support this COPE Centre with a visit and purchasing the knickknacks and tee shirts.

This is a small but very impactful museum. It is very well laid out and informative. It shows something that was done to Laos that we should never forget. I would highly recommend it.

Americans should prepare to feel deeply disturbed and ashamed while the rest of us should expect to be horrified and infuriated that such atrocities were deliberately inflicted upon a largely innocent, non-aggressive population. The museum is free and you enter by way of the gift...More
