This museum gives you an excellent overview of the building of the Thailand-Burma Railway during WWII.

The British considered building a railway in the 1880’s, but rejected the idea because the terrain and climate would take a terrible toll in lives lost in the attempt. The Japanese did it with prisoners, low paid civilians, Asian conscripts, and forced slaves.

The signage and displays are excellent and help you understand the cruelty that took place. The reality was nothing like the Academy Award winning movie!

Admittedly, most of my perspective of WW2 is shaped from the western front in Europe. I really would like to learn more about the Asian aspect of the war and plan to move to Japan someday. This is a good start for anyone looking to learn about the Japanese involvement in the war and their warcrimes that have gone relatively unpunished compared to the Nazis.

An excellent museum depicting the extreme hardships suffering by so many POW and captured Indians while building the infamous railway from Thailand to Burma. A must visit for WW2 history.
