A little out of the way if walking but so worth visiting. Incredibly informative, learned so much about Lao history and the bombings. Videos were heartbreaking. Couldn't believe it's free, please go and donate plenty.

Sorry I didn't get back sooner but the wifi the past couple of weeks hasn't been great. I see you have the information now and hope you get to visit the centre. You can walk to the centre if you don't want to take a Tuk Tuk... More
