I thought this small museum told the story of the Thailand-Burma Railway with depth and emotion. Our family spent quite a bit of time reading the details and taking in the displays. A not to be missed gem if in Kanchanburi.

Situated overlooking a war cemetery, this museum allows visitors to gain a insight into the history of this area that claimed so many lives. A somber place to visit but highly recommended. A free tea or coffee is provided.

This museum tells the story of the brutality of the building of this railway. It is well laid out with good access to all the displays. It tells the story accurately. A must visit to put the whole area into prospective of what happened here...More

Really very well laid out and informative museum. You can easily have 2-3 hours here and will understand very much more about the history. A great job and very well done. Congratulations to Rod Beattie and the team 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
