We visited this museum on our way to the river kwai bridge. It's actually an ancient train that attracted my attention, only than i realized it's a museum inside. Need to pay 40 Baht to enter the premise. Inside there are many old black and...More

This museum is a collection of odd-ball items. Most of which have little to no interest. It is very cheap though.

40 baht entrance fee. The museum is quite extensive with sections covering Japan in Thailand during WW2, and another section covering the history between Thailand and Burma. The museum seems a little disorganized but it's still very educational. And being just round the corner from...More

All descriptions are in English. You can visit within 1 hour. Across from cemetery. Helps to understand the prisoner railroad.

Museums can be both moving and memorable. Not this place. Sure, they have pictures and artefacts including a railway engine but beyond that, it is run down, poorly maintained and in great need of some cash injection to make it into a proper museum that...More
