Its about 40baht entrance you have the history of the feud between Thailand and Burma (we'll come back to that) or the history of POW's working on the railway. Some of the latter was OK, but it looks like it was built in the 80's...More

Worthy but some sloppy history in ground floor exhibition. Confusion between WW1, WW2 and Russo Japanese war. Nice realia but why is there a 1950s Mercedes sitting in top of the death railway loco?

This museum is near the bridge over the river kwae. Cheap and worth a short visit. It does not have the standards of a European war museum, but surely it is nice to spend some time there.

There were some interesting artifacts in exhibit but way too many items that just did nit belong. Very strange setup did not really make sense. Focused on merchandising.

A lot to see but the place is a bit shabby. Plenty of exhibits but they all look like they could do with a good clean. There are a mixture of war items and stuff dealing with Thai culture. It's worth spending an hour there.

I'm shocked to see that reviews here are completely mixed up, confusing the JEATH War Museum with the Art Gallery & War Museum that's closely located to the bridge. They are NOT the same!! Yes, the latter has a sign incorrectly saying JEATH but the...More

For me this was not worth visiting... old and dusty... the locomotive at the entrance is about to fall apart ...

As far as I recall, the sign gave no more information than can be gained from reading about the bridge on the Internet.
