“Good for a view of the bridge ”
Review of JEATH War Museum

JEATH War Museum
Ranked #44 of 62 things to do in Kanchanaburi
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 March 2018 via mobile

Dark, dingy, dusty and cramped. If you have time to kill, go ahead but don’t go out of your way for this place. It does, however, have a good elevated view of the river and the bridge. You can climb a short tower and they have benches that face the river.
If you’re part of a tour that takes you here, ask to skip it.

We visited this Death Railway museum because it was the one included in our day trip to the River Kwai.
As indicated in other reviews it is well past its best. Quite run down really.
We understand the historical linkage it had back to the PoWs and the monks, but really is it not beyond the wit of those running the pave to at least redo the labels and signs so that it looks like somebody actually cares about the story it is telling.
What a let down for the casualties

As you walk through a few huts you will find some very old and yellowing photos from the building of the bridge on the River Kwai and the death railroad. There is another hut with some old weapons from the era. I think most organized tours take you here otherwise I would skip it.

This was part of a tour. There were many pictures of soldiers at work and some exhibits that may have a connection to the construction of the Death Railway. The building was supposed to represent the accommodation the troops used and the "shelves" they slept on.

Without wishing to be disrespectful.... some of the pictures of soldiers looked very posed and the subjects in fine physical form. To me they resembled male physique photos from a bygone era. Then again perhaps my perception was wrong.

Open 8:30 to 16:30 daily. No photography allowed inside.

A visit to the war graves' cemetery gave a far more genuine experience.
