Nicely done war cemetery and ell maintained. Difficult to rate the ‘entertainment’ factor of a facility with the sole purpose to remind of the people died during building the railway and being buried there.

It is always a privilege to visit the resting place of fallen soldiers. To see the number and especially the ages of the British, Dutch and Australian war dead is a sobering moment. I have visited here previously and I am always impressed with the...More

Excellent museum! Very well presented and informative. We spent about 2-3 hours here. There's a coffee shop and toilets. It's just across the road from the war cemetery.

A must if in the area, even just to pay tribute to all the POW's who died having been forced into hard labour to build the Kwai Bridge. The memorial itself is presented beautifully with information to Read. Well worth a visit.

This war cemetery is very well set out and maintained. There are many graves of British, Dutch, Australian and other service personnel who died during the Thai-Burma railroad construction. Unexpectedly, we came across the grave of a British soldier who shared the same family name...More
