This museum was part of our full day trip: Bridge over River Kwai and Hellfire Pass, offered by Asia Discovery. See my detailed review with the same name. This JEATH museum has very interesting photos but is in an uncared for state. The photos are exposed to sun and moisture and many of the captions are almost unreadable. It is... More

Jeath war museum is a mixed used museum, lots of WWII info, Thai/Burma info. However it is not all that well organized or well maintained. Most everything is falling apart, the exhibits and the building. It only costs 20 BHT, which is very reasonable. You do get a great unobstructed view of the bridge, that alone is worth the price...

This place is huge! You don't realise to start off with with bit there are so many area to look around and tonnes of things to see. There is a collection of war guns and other memorabilia as well as lots of information on the walls. Some of the English translations don't read perfectly, but for the most part it... More

Don't bother. Waste of 40 baht. There is nothing to see, except for the offensive glass box holding the remains of 100+ dead Commonwealth soldiers. The exhibits are limited and there isn't much to see. Nothing educational and it is poorly maintained and curated. I would not call this a museum. It is more like someone's collection of old Japanese... More

All sorts of unrelated stuff is thrown together here. There are no guides, and many items are mislabeled. I was in and out in ten minutes. I think a lot of people are likely misinformed as to this being a museum about the death railway because it is so close to the bridge plaza, and are likely directed here by... More

Disappointing as displays are not well Cared for and need a very good dusting - shows it's not well maintained nor very interesting.

It contains some really interesting items, images and objects from the war however it does need to be cleaned, maintained and labelled a lot better in order to take better care of these items and provide more infomation.

It's close to the bridge and only 40 baht entrance fee so worth a look to see a few old photos and war memorabilia.

This place only costs 40 baht to get in, that's about the best thing I can say about it. To be honest, the whole place is a waste of time. You are better off going to the real Death Railway museum which is located opposite the cemetery, and actually tells the truth about what happened instead of glorifying the Japanese... More

It's right next to the Bridge on the River Kwai. You can see the ( now tourist ) train coming and going from the large veranda of this museum. It has paintings and biographies of all the main players of the world wars on a big wall. Very informative.
