Located in Dong Ha City, Quang Tri Province, Vietnam with easy access for tourist buses, the Center serves as an ideal quick-stop for international and national DMZ visitors to refresh before continuing their journey to former areas of operations and other historic relics in Quang Tri province. Visitors to the Center will view exhibits, documentaries, images, and facts and figures that depict the fierceness of the war and its devastating impact on the land and people of Quang Tri. Tourists and students, veterans delegations and others will learn about efforts of government authorities, local residents, and international organizations to address the Explosive Remnants of War or ERW problem since the war ended. Visitors will also be provided opportunities to contribute to mine action activities that help the people and the land of Quang Tri continue on their path of recovery, after enduring many years of pain and loss from the war. The Center is open from 08:00 a.M. To 05:00 p.M. On weekdays, on weekend days, please contact in advance for visit arrangement. No admission fees will be charged.

The Center gives you a brief overview over the war, the leftover explosives still scattered and the actions they take to get rid of them. No entrance fee. There is a box to give a donation, what we happily did.
