Video room was not operational when we visited so perhaps that would have made it more graphically impactful. Lots of historical material to read and study. However the haphazard display of items makes it seem like a scrap-metal junkyard. It's a shame as the graveness...More

Before I visited UXO I had no idea about these problems - and I've been in Laos for a month. The displays are clear and simple to understand and we both sobbed at the video - seriously harrowing first hand accounts. This is a very...More
