We stopped here on our way into Kanchanaburi. We did not have much idea what the Death Railway was, and this was so helpful to us--making sure we didn't miss out on understanding the magnitude of what happened here. We especially liked the personal artifacts...More

After the shambles that is JEATH, this museum is a fine tribute to those who lived through, and died on, the building of the Thai-Burma railway. A modern, clean museum with excellent exhibits and memorabilia. The coffee shop overlooks the nearby CWGC cemetery

Here we learned about the horrors experienced by the Allied prisoners of WWII. It's not a pleasant museum, but one everyone should visit. War is ugly!
