Museum and part if trail is under renovation, need to go through steps and need some effort to climb steps to return. Can see a cut section of Thai_Burma railway made by PoW.

This review is about the walking trail and not the museum as it was closed for renovations when we were there. The walking tour is great. They provide you with a free headset for the electronic guided tour. Very neat and informative. Very well maintained....More

The walking trail is not very long or strenuous. A terrible part of history is remembered here. It is well worth visiting the museum and walking the trail with the audio guide that can be rented at the office.

Not sure if you can access the path before the museum opens. However the narrative on the headset is very much worth waiting for. The simple narrative along with the 1st hand recounts is a major part of the experience
