A lot of information, the staff were very friendly. It was a bit difficult to find but was well worth it. We spend several hours there. But dont buy the food at the main entrance. Its real crap!

Very good exhibits giving an insight into a wide range of prosthetics. Makes you wonder why the US is not helping to clear the bombs they dropped ...

We spent a couple of hours here reading all the displays and watching some of the documentaries. I was nearly in tears after the first 5 minutes, it is genuinely inspiring what the COPE centre has managed to achieve. Distressing yet powerful stuff.

We didn't realize how many bombs had been dropped on Laos iver the years, nor did we realize that these bombs are still a threat costing lives and limbs.
