As the title says a complete waste of time really. It lacked depth / meaning with very sparse exhibits / information. Guess it feeds off the passing Kwai Bridge tourists nearby ( as we were). I would have preferred to have just put money in...More

Lots of old faded photos, confusing layout and confusing attraction, did not enjoy this or learn anything. The toilets were very clean though.

If this place is a testament to the memories of the death railway don’t go - it’s an odd collection of items that don’t really tell a story. We highly recommend going to the Hellfire Pass as part of a tour which ends going to...More

We took a relaxing boat ride along the river there. Entrance is 50 baht per person. Not many display but items are organised and informative and gives a better perspective of the POW conditions during that period.

Really informative, even more so for my 34 year old son who knew nothing about the Japanese occupation of Thailand. Well laid out museum if you follow the recommended trail. Harrowing photos and models depicting the worst of the cruelty meted out by the Japanese...More

Ehm... well... probably the best way to describe this ‘museum’ is random collection of old stuff. It’s cheap, so no real regret, but is not curated at all and even gets historic facts wrong. The only thing it has going for it is the view...More

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