Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very interesting museum.
Based in the shaddow of the bridge but not entirely focused on the death railway.
Some of the documentation exhibited from the war period seemed rather biased towards the Japanese, but in context of the time, and the punishments metered out by the occupiers, not unsurprising.
The overall portrayal of the futility of war I found quite moving.
One thing I did find rather inapropriate and condiscending was the sign at the enterance with the caricature of a smiling Japanese guard.

Literally just around the corner from the Bridge over the River Kwai, this is definately a must see attraction. It doesn't have loads of exhibits and I felt not must focussed on the brutality of the Japanese but go take a look and see for yourself.

This place is big and has some great parts to get a food idea what happens to the POW during WWII. You need a good couple of hours, but well worth a stroke around before heading down to the River Kwia Bridge

We had been advised that this was ‘quirky’ but I was still quite surprised at how poor it was.
A collection of miscellaneous artifacts, many with little or no connection to the railway or the area. Ie a picture of George Washington?
I recommend that you save your 50 baht entrance fee and head straight to the ‘Thailand-Burma railway Centre’ 1k away. Now that is a proper museum.

Very sad that this should respect and honour those who Served the country and ended up as PoW in terrible, unthinkable conditions. Sadly the museum is tired, not looked after and just a jumble of images and artufacts with little coherence. Very sad especially in comparison to the honour given to the Australians and other commonwealth PoWs at the Hellfire pass museum.

It's a random collection of stuff that has no coherence or theme. It's cheap but definitely not worth your time. The materials include dresses and paintings of miss Thailand winners. Nothing to do purpose. Skip it and go to proper museum.

As soon as you walk in to the entrance you see 1 of the original steam trains !
The whole place is truly amazing with war artefacts everywhere ! Amazing place to take photos and see History !
Right next door to the tourist trap railway bridge and probably over looked by many !
It’s a must see place 100%

We went to this museum after visiting the War Museum and there is no comparison. This museum did not have the level of detail and thoughtfulness that was put into the War Museum. This one looked quickly slapped together and not worth a visit. Don’t waste your time here.

Dreadful. Don't waste your time. Random bits of tut and misinformation. Visit the museum opposite the cemetry and indeed the cemetry

If you have a choice between JEATH and the Thai Burma Railway Centre choose the latter. JEATH is old and tired. There’s lots of stuff but not curated to tell a story. Many exhibits are in a state of disrepair. There’s also a huge room marked ‘owners things’ that is full of old clocks, old typewriters, old furniture and basically old junk.

There’s also a very odd collection of very tall replicas of WWII leaders including Stalin, Churchill, Hitler, Mussolini, Truman and others with background stories for each written on the wall. However, you can’t read the story from the beginning because someone (staff/the owners?) park their motor bikes along with household items in front of the beginning of the story.

I would have given this place one star but for the fact that it has a good view of the bridge on the River Khwae.
