Well worth the nominal entrance fee, do this tour then pop across to the graveyard to pay your respects and marvel at the ages of those that gave their lives

Its all very authentic, and the travel time to get there is worth it ! I recommend if there is more than two of you to hire your own driver for the day and book to have lunch with the Monks at the Tiger Temple.

This is an impressive museum that deserves the attention of any tourist staying in Kanchanaburi.

A pity a few more modern day Japanese visitors do not take the time to visit this museum !
