This was a horrible museum. Very dark and it was difficult to read. Didn't really focus on the Bridge. No tour guides g and mine was worthless).

At the museum reception, they told us it was the entrance to the river Kwai bridge, so we paid the 40 bahts. This was a lie. We told them that we wouldn't have entered if they didn't lied their response were "I know".

Old, dark, dusty and in need of renovation, but interesting. Lots of WWII items, weapons, boats, etc. The mannequins are creepy looking but this IS a death museum.....No A/C in there so it was really hot, but worth a short stop...

There are some nice objects to be seen in this museum, but the ticket already warns about what is coming: it is called "Maintenance fee". And maintenance is needed... Most objects are covered in a layer of dust, which appears to come frome the era's...More

I have visited this museum several times over a number of years. It has always been small but an entity in itself. It seems to have morphed into a bigger museum with other random memorabilia. Sign posts are poor and the story of the War...More

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