Museum is very informative, professional and well presented. I think its run by the Australians. There are a couple of other war museums in the town but this is the only one we thought was of a professional standard (would also recommend the museum at Hellfire Pass if you have time to get there). There is also a cafe and... More

An informative, though provoking museum. Well laid out with easily accessible information. Well worth combining with a visit to the bridge and if possible the railway & hellfire pass (easily done with public transport).

The team that work there are so helpful and knowledgeable, they even helped us find even more information about a family member, nothing was to much trouble. They also have disabled facilities.

A small but well structured and very informative museum. Photograph not allowed. Free tea and coffee voucher given on admission. We came here as part of the kanchanaburi tour with war cemetery and railway tour, so was only given 40mins to spend here. It was not enough, we would've easily spent 1.5hrs there reading through everything and watching the videos.... More

We came here as part of our tour and had plenty of time to walk around and read all the information and look at the arrivals. I found it very informative and moving the videos were very interesting and it is hard not getting emotional seeing what these people went through. Facilities in the museum were very good and the...

This was a very informative place and you realised what the people went through. Very harrowing. Makes you feel sad.

Good overview about the Thailand Burma Railway. Lots of pictures and artefacts. Upper level was a bit too much text so I only read the highlights. Recommended!

This museum is well designed and full of interesting photos and information. Good value-should go there before you visit the bridge over the river Kwai (which was a disappointment-very touristy).

The journey seemed to fly by and was taken just because we could, being in the right place at the right time. It is perhaps a little over rated but something we had to do whilst in the area. Don't bother to pay the extra 150 Bht for the upgraded seats as there is nothing inferior that I could see... More
