Fantastic mix of historical facts presented in different ways, with a historical timeline to read, the extensive models, the video to watch and the heart wrenching personal artifacts. You also get a free hot drink afterwards - nice touch. This is a worthwhile experience.

Prices for Thai 100 baht prices for foreigner 150 baht. The best 150 baht I have ever spent. This place is well set up and very very informative. There are lots of artifacts and stories indicating just how hard the lives were of these very courageous Armed Forces personnel and civilians from various nationalities. Heroes every last one of them. I could quite easily have spent several hours here but alas was restricted to only a couple. This place is well situated overlooking the Kanchanaburi war cemetary and both places are very humbling. In my view this is a MUST visit. My Thai wife was horrified at some of the stories and she certainly learnt a lot. Don’t ignore this place, go and visit.

After we departed the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery, our tour guide mentioned that we had a short drive to the other side of the War Cemetery to visit the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre. So we took advantage of this, exiting our vehicle, while the tour operator guided us to the window where we were required to pay our fee. He then led us to the top floor, where there was a very large cafeteria, stating that he would remain there while he waited for us to enjoy our self-guided tour. He even went so far to purchase some sweet items for us to consume before starting our own self-guided tour.

The total time for this tour lasted approximately 1-hour and there were numerous full-sized figures, being shown as to what it was like when the Bridge Over the River Kwai was constructed. Many of the adult size figurines looked like the items were really alive, as they went about their way to dig their way through canyons and high mountains as the Railway led from Burma into Thailand. There were also full-sized layout of the encampment of the soldiers to include well-lit scenarios of what it was like to live in this Japanese Camp under miserable conditions. Additionally, there were many black and white photos depicting what it was like in those days, when men were suffering from severe dehydration, malaria and other afflictions, that brought a chill down my spine.

All in all, I would highly suggest that you take the time to visit "The Thailand-Burma Railway Centre" as it was well laid out and air-conditioned within the building.

We went to the museum as part of a tour package. It is well set out and gives a detailed account of the bridge construction and events during this period of the war. It wasnt too busy when we were there in March so we had plenty of time to read the information and take in the accounts of some of those that were there, which are documented in the museum. I would definetely recommend making time to go to this museum as part of a wider trip to the bridge. There is a good cafe at the museum which over looks the war cemetory across the road.

We visited this as apart of a bigger tour.
It was a very emotive place to visit, and the information was very impressive.
This with the war grave nearby is a must see for anyone in the area.
