If you're in the area, this exhibit & visiting the rail tracks is worth the time. Interesting to learn more of the history & walk along feeling the presence of the people who built the railway.

The hell fire pass was amazing when you consider they had to cut it with a hammer and chisel it is a long way down and back up the stairs when you are finished

Reminder of heavy past. Take time out to cover the full walking trail if it's opened. Watch out for uneven walking path laden with uneven stones. Safe travels.

Very nostalgic visit to Hellfire Pass and museum. The walk along Hellfire Pass needs a good pair of shoes as it is a very up and down track. you can get headphones with a commentary to take with you as you walk along the pass. The track is well kept and you can walk to the end and come back... More

The buildings and facilities are brand new and exceptionally kept. The walkways are kept very well too. Very detailed information in museum and artefacts. Felt incredibly somber and moved by the story of the POWs. It's a definate must see in area. The walk down to the pass is haunting as you see where it is manually been chiselled out... More

We went there with a Thai guide who told us about all the people who had to die there. Very sad ... however very interesting to remind what happened in the history. You have to take the train and go through the river Kwai bridge as well.

Solemn and gut wrenching museum that is a must to visit. Get there early and hire a set of headphones/ audio guide. You can only imagine the pain and suffering that every man that served our country went through in this place. Walk down to Hellfire Pass the easy way via the platforms but walk up the 'old' way via... More

Nicely put together indoor museum which, without many display articles, tells the story of what happened here. Walk along the pass is eerie and evocative when you think about what they did here. Tasteful memorials and excellent access walkways.

The museum is sobering and also informative about what happened to the POW, who were basically slaves to the Japanese and forced to work on the Burma railroad. The Bridge over the River Kwai was based on the building of this railroad line. Walking the 4 KM trail through the Hellfire cut brings history alive.
