Fantastic mix of historical facts presented in different ways, with a historical timeline to read, the extensive models, the video to watch and the heart wrenching personal artifacts. You also get a free hot drink afterwards - nice touch. This is a worthwhile experience.

We visited this as apart of a bigger tour. It was a very emotive place to visit, and the information was very impressive. This with the war grave nearby is a must see for anyone in the area.

A powerful museum, full of artefacts from the horror of the railway construction. Great dual language signing and a superb film on the subject. A small but powerful museum. A must see.
