A must visit. It is small and a little easy to miss (on the grounds of a disability rehabilitation centre). The videos and information are excellent. Something anyone that visits Laos needs to see to understand the impact of US bombings 50 years ago

This place is the best place for information about the Western Tiers area of Tassie. Helpful staff, plenty of brochures and gifts and clean toilets. At the high end of Deloraine

This is a very well presented little centre. The layout is logical and I would recommend taking your time and following the route around. Some of it is quite upsetting (there was one video in particular that got me) but it's essential for anyone visiting...More

Such an amazing place to visit. Learned so much here. I didn't know much about the history of Laos and certainly didn't have any knowledge of the bombing history here. The COPE foundation is both inspiring and informative and is definitely a must see in...More

A great insight into the secret war, with particular focus on amputees from unexplored bombs still in Laos today. Lots of hands-on displays and easy to spend an hour or so walking around and watching the various documentaries in the cinema room.

I've given it 5 stars because of what it is. The people here will tell you about the work they do helping those people who are still being maimed every year by accidents with unexploded bombs. We were told that approx 200 million tons of...More

I had no idea of the magnitude of the unexploded ordnance on Laos during the Vietnam War. Over 580,000 bombs were dropped on this country, 30% of which never exploded. People in the country sides are still being injured in a war in which they...More

This center shows an important part of history, including docus and a lot of pictures. Visiting this place is a must for young and old. Free of charge. They do accept donations to help one or more of the many UXO victims in Laos

Sorry I didn't get back sooner but the wifi the past couple of weeks hasn't been great. I see you have the information now and hope you get to visit the centre. You can walk to the centre if you don't want to take a Tuk Tuk... More
