A must if you want to get a real insight on how the soldiers were treated, very emotional time when you hear and see pictures of what they went through.

Lots of exhibits but outdated information. Would be nice to have a guide of sorts. The information is all pulled from articles written some time ago. Sad to see a lot of the exhibits falling into disarray.

Plenty to see and very informative. We only had an hour here as part of a booked day trip, but you could certainly spend quite a while longer here. Worth a visit and steeped in detailed history.

This was my second visit to this museum, the first was in 1997. It is not as good as I remember and it really seems like the people running (Nearby Church) the museum have just let it slowly fall apart.

If you are at the bridge it’s worth a look, like most of Thailand the information giving is minimal and the place is dropping to bits. However the idea and the original wooden bridge makes it worth a £1.

this so called museum is nothing more than a compilation of junk and has no educational value whatsoever, nor does it serve as a solemn remembrance of the thousands of forced laborers who died building the „death rail“. it‘s an insult to the victims, really....More

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