This place is not big but shows a lot of information, also in english. Although like all places the info shown is very one sided (all about american bombs, not one word about vietnamese) it's worth a visit.

This was an amazing tribute to those affected by land mines that still occupy the Quang Tri province. I learned a lot of important information. I would definitely go back.

The visitor center is a great location to learn about the continued struggle with UXO. They do great work in an area plagued by leftovers from the war. Hien did a great job showing us around!

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.

I have a military background and recommend this visit. Of course it is told from the Vietnamese viewpoint, however it does not diminish the impact of how humans treat each other. I understand the locals would use unexploded ordinance for fishing or farm work, often...More
