If you are visiting Kanchanaburi, there's no reason why you should miss a visit to the Hellfire Pass. It's a beautiful train ride upto Nam-Tok across the River Kwai, and then a short local bus ride (Bus no. 8203, if I am not mistaken) takes...More
The museum had just been refurbished and had a good array of exhibits and information to tell the story of what had happened here. The views of the surrounding area are amazing, and to see hell fire pass itself was an experience I will never...More
A really good insight into the suffering so many men endured at the hands of the Japanese. Museum is the right length, not too long winded and gets the message across. If you like nature the additional walk beyond the hellfire pass is recommended especially...More
The history behind this spot is somber and disturbing, but the Australian and Thai governments came together and fashioned a respectful memorial to those who lost their lives building this section of the Thai-Burmese Railway. If you were drawn here (as I was) by 'The...More

Museum is well worth visiting. Amazing tribute to all the POWs, their strength & character evident, given the conditions they did (or did not) survive in. It was hot & humid walking the trail, but to imagine doing this everyday plus hard physical labor...humbling. A...More
Unfortunately, the museum was undergoing remodeling, so we weren't able to see the exhibits. But the walking trail was open and it was worth it. Very well done with informational displays along the path. Quite a sobering sight, the crevice that was made by the...More
This is a moderate to difficult hike for many. The surface is mostly Rocky and there are quite a few steps. Regardless, my 11-year-old and I were able to traverse it quite easily. I was unaware, before my trip to Thailand, that this even existed....More
As a South African in Thailand out is useful to see how various sites and tourist attractions compare to home. I loved this museum. Exceedingly well put together. A very classy presentation.
My partner was in the SA Army - on the Angolan border. He...More
Hellfire Pass Walking Trail was an incredible way to see the terrain that the POWs and laborers had to work with to build the Death Railway. The walking trail and scenery are lovely, but the history of the area is haunting. The Memorial Museum was...More

Hi there,I would have to sorry but not really as from the museum which is at the top of the hill you take a long walk down a framed stair case and some of the steps are strap to the path which is at the bottom and from there you walk along the rail way which the path is very Stoney and has some of the rail way sleepers still in place.
I would how ever say if you do travel by mini bus etc to the museum the area at the top but the car park and the museum walk way and also in the museum are ok for access.
Hope this help in some way.
