nice visit, watched a history video, then a walk around displays which were very interesting, from war and life style history point of view. 100 baht entry, I'd say worth it for 30-45 mins

There is a lot of photos and soldiers equipment storage boxes and water jars. There are rusted cabs of trucks be they Japanese or Thai. Overall not really worth the visit.From the couple of tickets sold out of a book, not many foreign visitors.

This small museum documents the history of Thai-Japanese friendship arising from the Japanese occupation of the area during World War Two. The museum was funded and built by the Japanese, so it understandably has a pro-Japanese bias to its exhibits. Our motorcycle tour group stopped...More
