Sadly this museum is so ruin down and badly signed it was a big disappointment. Much of what was on display was little to do with the bridge and it's history. To many items either not displayed with descriptions, or in Thai script only. Some...More

Superb place to visit and only costs a few baht. Lots to see and although dated and running on donations, it has some great pieces from WWII. I really think they could charge more and this may support improving the premises.

Had a few interesting exhibits but some rooms felt a bit messy and disorganised. Worth a visit if you’re interested in the POW building of the railway.

JEATH as the name says stands for includes the names of 5 countries who participated in the war. Japanese , English , Australian Thailand and Holland. There is entry fees to it which shouldn't be. So I did not visit it inside , just saw...More

Just steps from the Bridge on the River Kwai, I had high hopes for this museum. But clearly the place is past its prime. In fact, it was so un-memorable, that I didn't even take any photos inside! In this museum, all kinds of relics...More

Not to be confused with the WW2/JEATH mueseum close to the River Kwai Bridge, this mueseum is on the other side of town, just called the JEATH mueseum. We came across it in the Lonely Planet guide and decided to take the long walk there....More

A warm welcome to the Museum which contains various artefacts from the period of the construction of the 'Death Railway' I believe some of the exhibits, labelled as being used during this period are post war. It's worth a quick 30 minute visit but not...More

The place was nice with a lot of historical items from the second world war. We spent there around one hour learning about the japanese construction of the bridge and other events. Pay a visit if you can.

I enjoyed this attraction because I did t know very much at all about WE2 in this part of the world. This museum has many pictures of activities in the war camps. These were interesting and eye-opening because it showed how these POWs lives and...More

As far as I recall, the sign gave no more information than can be gained from reading about the bridge on the Internet.
