This is a very informative museum which gives a self explanatory tour of the history of the Japanese invasion of South East Asia through interactive panels and PoW relics and artefacts. Most definitely the better of the two museums to visit and it is also...More

A must see for visitors to Kanchanaburi. The story of the Thai/Burma Death Railway in a manner that can be interpreted by young and old. It costs a few dollars for entry but it is certainly worthwhile.

A must for anyone interested in WW11 history and informative for those who just dabble. Everything in a format that is easy to understand and appreciate all the pain and suffering that the poor POW's went through -we should never forget.

This the best place to come to learn about how and why the Thai - Burma railway came about and what happened to the people that built it. Definitely worth a visit.

Interesting and informative place to visit to get an overview understanding of the WW2 and POWs. Well maintained and with aircon for a small entrance fee. Free coffee/tea provided. Just opposite Kanchanaburi War Cemetery.
