MAG Visitors Centre
The tragedy of landmines
What we say:
Along with COPE, another place to learn about the landmine problem in Laos is the Mine Advisory Group (MAG) Visitors Centre along the riverfront.
MAG has been clearing landmines in Laos since 1994 and was a co-laureate for the Nobel Prize in 1997. The Visitors Centre offers a close look at their important work through slide shows, documentaries, aerial bombing maps, and a collection of UXOs. Admission is free but you can show your support by making a donation and receiving postcards or a T-shirt.
