Probably about my westerners culture I will have thought going to a museum will be under the arms of a curator proud of his museum and everything in the place will be conserved with precautions and protection here the only person you can see is...More

This modest museum provides useful insight to the railway and the prisioners who worked and died on its construction. Not surprisingly, there are not a lot of artefacts - time, the weather and the circumstances of a brutal period of captivity meant that not a...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.

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