A part of Laos’ troubled history is the Vietnam War which lasted till 1973. Around two million tons of ordnance was dropped on Laos during this war, which resulted in severe disability amongst the local population. The Cooperative Orthotic and Prosthetic Enterprise (COPE) Centre works with disabled people in third world countries and offers rehabilitative service in terms of physical and psychological therapy. The Visitor Centre here offers interaction with victims, documentary films about UXOs and COPE. Visitors are welcome to custom-made ice-cream and refreshments at the Karma Cafe. Proceeds from this cafe go directly to the centre’s funds. Visitors can make donations and contribute to COPE’s mission.

Cope Visitor Centre Reviews & Ratings
Nice museum about the horrors of the bombies and general disabilities/amputees. No entry fee, donation is possible instead. They have a movie rum with so many different clips that you could spend several hours there. Liked the dragon and how they arranged the waking path.
Definitely worth a visit while you're in Vientiane! This is one of the few places in Laos that I would consider a museum, and they have done a good job of putting together displays that are informative and interesting. Admittance is free, and they accept donations.
Little but effective museum, without fees for the entrance it shows and help you to put in the shoes of the victim of bombs in Laos.
Wonderful work, spend a while looking around and give a donation!
Easily reachable by foot (Vientiane is a nice city to walk around anyway) , this museum is very interesting with a lot of good information, good balance between written and film. You can spend half a day there and still have something to learn.
