Well worth the time to travel here from Bangkok. It is a very moving memorial to the pow's that suffered building the railway. The museum show displays of what they went through and a film that really shows the suffering. Very emotional. The walk down the stairs was ok. The walk back up a bit more challenging. A lot easier... More

Hiking up and down on a hot sunny day on fairly paved roads was bad enough. Imagine what the workers went through without proper equipments and adequate supplies. It is a once in a lifetime experience.

no one should forget what the world was like during WWII. this australian government sponsored museum is very well done in showing how inhumane people could do to one another at war time. the museum is informative, comfy, neat and clean with air-con, and free of charge. a 10 minute walk on a very well made wooden walkway down the...

I've been wanting to do this for some time! I walked the 4kms length of this track and it was very rewarding and an emotional experience. Half the track is designed for tourists while the second half is just maintained and has a more authentic feel to it which I appreciated. Wear good shoes and have a decent camera or... More

This museum makes me proud to be an Australian. They have created a fabulous memorial space to the prisoners of war who gave their lives to creating the pass. The museum is highly accessible however the walk is not for the feint hearted - it's hot, steep, rough terrain in parts, and a flying bug paradise. Our 10 year old... More

We got a taxi to the museum & hellfire pass from Kanchanaburi (agree a set price when you book) the museum was extremely interesting and well laid out, the suffering of the prisoners of war & Asian workers is totally unimaginable, and such loss of life incomprehensible. Walking the hellfire pass was very moving.

#hellfirepass #konyucutting #deathrailway #kanchanaburi #thailand This is a must visit place. Very moving. The museum is informative and do listen to the audio. However you need time there. roughly you need 2 hours to properly do the hellfire museum n pass.
