“Thailand-Burma Railway Centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

I found it one of the best information and research centres
This museum shows an excellent portrayal of the hardships and cruelty the POW's have endured. It is very informative with state of the art displays.
It is located opposite the cemetery and is a must see

“very informative and modern museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

It is worth allocating at least and hour looking over this museum Very informative with dioramas and actual photos of the suffering endured by the Allied soldiers and local labourers building the Burma railway A cup of tea is include in the admission price and there are many relics and reminders of the war in south east Asia A good place to carry out research on this subject and is better than the older museum in town 120 baht admission

“Thailand-Burma Railway Centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

This museum and research centre is simply the best in the world for the " Burma-Siam RaiIway ", its Director Rod Beatty is the utmost authority on the RAILWAY and the Manager Terry Manttan and researcher Andrew Snow are so knowledgeable, everyone here is so helpful even for those who have no link with the RAILWAY, it is the most wonderfull museum to visit, please don't miss it.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

Brilliant - this place is the pick of the bunch. Well set out with great information and contributions from families of the POW's that define this part of war history.

I would put aside a few hours to really take in all the information that is presented here. It is well worth the time and the effort to read all the little snippets of information.
