This museum is a good place to show people the damages of the secret war and why the US bomb terror is so bad for the targeted region - even still decades after the war. In my opinion a not really big but very important place to visit in Luang Prabang! Donations are welcome, they are also selling shirts (I... More

This is a very imteresting museum to visit. It explains how Lao was attacked by bombs during the Vietnam War and how, nowadays, they are still working on it and how dangerous it is. It's worth a visit, the entrance is for free and it is a small place, so it won't take many hours to visit the place.

Any traveller with a conscience who is aware of Laos past should not miss this. It is a basic yet informative look at the left over of America's long denied bombing campaign of Laos (more bombs were dropped on Laos then were dropped during all of WWII) and its ongoing affect on the rural population. Please take the time to... More

It is a humbling experience. Everyone should go and learn about the Lao history during the Second Indochina War (e.g. Vietnam War).

A small but important museum. While not necessarily a fun or relaxing thing to do while on vacation, if you're in Luang Prabang, please take an hour out of your day and visit the UXO Laos Visitor Center.

A well presented expose of the 1964-1973 Secret Bombing of Laos by the U.S Air Force. With 80,000,000 still unexploded cluster bombs and other sorts of anti-personnel ordinance on the ground, this has to be a crime against humanity. And apparently it is still secret because no one seems to know or care. The irony is that even though America... More

Exhibition small in stature but large on impact. Everyone should visit this Exhibition to see the impact of war on essentially a neutral country. Here we are 37yrs since the Vietnam6 war and there is still millions of unexploded ordinance in the neutral neighbour of Vietnam. I am not going to give a history or moral lesson but anyone near...

Decided to visit here based on previous reviews when looking for things to do to fill in our extra days in town and very glad we did. The UXO Center is thought provoking and sobering. Watch the brief movies...and leave a decent donation on your way out. it is filled with essential information to know about Laos.
