The JEATH was small, dirty and the English descriptions are full of grammar and spelling mistakes. I did like the pictures, the prisoner made sketches and the newspaper parts from the war. If you've been or are going to the Burma - Thailand railway museeum and the Hell fire pass museum you don't need this one.

People confuse this museum with the Burma - Thailand railway museeum next to the cemetery. This one has a bunch of junk that is disorganised and then what looks like random historical events without a common thread. It's right next to the Bridge of River Kwai and I think it lives of that tourists think this one is the Burma - Thailand railway museeum and payes for the entrance. DO NOT DO THAT MISTAKE! Some organised tours take their tourists to this museum instead of the Burma - Thailand railway museeum which is about 1 km from the bridge. Make sure you get to go to the right museum before you book tours.

It was pretty hard to find it since there are not many signs. Entry costs 50 baht. The bamboo building shows which contains exhibition also shows how prisoners used to live because it is a replica of their houses. Museum is pretty small and probably worth a visit if you are interested in that particular period of time and history of the Death railway.

If you've already visited one of the other WWII musea, you may as well skip this one. It's setup as an outdoor museum with replicas of the POW baracks, but the content is rather bleak. The text below the images is often hardly readable and the images themselves are in not much better condition. A missed opportunity to experience, for instance, what mid day heat feels like in a barack packed with dozens of people (there was hardly anyone there).

One of the first thoughts that cross your mind is ''is this it?'' You pay 100 baht to get in and you expect a museum, when in reality there are two bamboo huts and one other little building with pictures and quotes in it. But I must say, this museum gave me more shivers down my spine than the whole bridge. They describe the condition the people had to live and work in, they show you photos / paintings and quote prisoners. The other little building with photos and explanations about the diseases the prisoners got brought me to tears. This can be a really good and worthy attraction.
