We have been here before but decided to take the kids this time. As always the place is moving and full of historical information. They were re-building the museum however the walk and head sets provided a comprehensive historical recount. Well worth a visit

Make the effort - an impressive tribute to the thousands who died working on the Death Railway. Congratulations to DVA for supporting the renovation of the Interpretation Centre and for improving access.

We visited Hell Fire Pass in the pouring rain which makes you appreciate what these brave men had to contend with to build this railway. As an Australian I'm very proud that the preservation of this historic site continues.

There’s a part of World War II history here. Museum is currently under renovation (Aug 2018). The walking trail is still available. It’s a short walk to the hellfire pass, stairs looks newly built. And you will each the Konyu cutting. A very very short...More
