Hi,

In addition to the places you mentioned there are two other museums in Kanchanaburi. Both are know locally as the Jeath Museum, one is within a couple of minutes walk of the bridge while the other is just south of the town centre. Two days is sufficient to see the places you mention. There are many places of natural beauty to visit in the Kanchanaburi area. For exampe, the Erawan Falls and Sai Yok national park. I don't personally know any drivers but in the past I have organized private transport through these tour agents:

Hi EncOre21

If you arrive early then you can spend the first day to see the thai-Burma railway museum and bridge of river Kwai. The museum closes at 5pm and the bridge area at 7pm.

You can also join one of the tours the next day (full day tour) to take you to Erawan, hellfire pass, krasae cave, a 30 min ride on the death railway and bridge of river Kwai. If you are not in a hurry to get back to bkk, then you can take the last bus back.

If you organize for a private tour it will be more expensive.
