It's not about the price, which at 40฿ is very cheap, but this museum does nothing to educate or inform unless you are interested to see the vehicles the Japanese used to go into the market. Very disappointing

This is a very small museum and not a lot in it really however it's quite surreal as lots if actual photos and memorabilia from Second World War but wouldn't rush back to see it as I thought it would be a lot bigger. There is another one in centre of town which we didn't visit as had no time... More

A very small museum showing many photographs of the pows and the conditions they had to endure. A little disappointing.

The place looks promising on the outside but when i got inside, i realized there is nothing much to see. I wish there are more information that i could read inside the museum. I guess because it is very cheap (40 baht), that you only get what you pay for.

the small museum displays photographs and illustrations narrating the living condition of prisoners of war (POWs) during that cruel time.

One hot day at the war museum it was very interesting to see. There is a lot to see in there. It's a place to see and it does cost. Visited in 2011

Looks good from the outside but once in you realise this could be so much better. The reconstructed hut gives an idea of the living accommodation for the POW's but most of the information is in Thai. There are a couple of short videos to watch, but when we were ther one wasn't working. Shame really.

The JEATH was small, dirty and the English descriptions are full of grammar and spelling mistakes. I did like the pictures, the prisoner made sketches and the newspaper parts from the war. If you've been or are going to the Burma - Thailand railway museeum and the Hell fire pass museum you don't need this one.

It was pretty hard to find it since there are not many signs. Entry costs 50 baht. The bamboo building shows which contains exhibition also shows how prisoners used to live because it is a replica of their houses. Museum is pretty small and probably worth a visit if you are interested in that particular period of time and history... More
