“definitely go!”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

This is the third uxo centre we have been to since being in laos. Each one i have learnt something new. It's small but very informative and interesting. Uxo has a devastating effect on the lives of many people in laos today. This centre explains the history of uxo and how they are also helping victims too.

It is a small exhibition ,with some pictures and a DVD video for sale, but if you want to see the life and daily problems of local people you should see this place.

“You should definitely go”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

You can see all the craters still there 50 years later. It is interesting to learn about what happened. You can also see films about the war, not just UXO at some bars in town.

“A secret war that is still a secret to most.”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

What a terrible past that Laos had to endure, and what an equally terrible present that still lingers over from the past. I can't believe that I never learned about any of the horrible atrocities that occurred in Laos. I would highly recommend heading to MAG and watching the films after you return from a day at the Plain of Jars.

Even more than that, I would highly suggest that you return to your country and talk about it. Ignorance is stopping aid from getting to Laos, and by spreading knowledge you can help if only a little.
