The Thailand-burma Railway Centre, Kanchanaburi Reviews

  • Extremely informative museum with detailed description of its exhibits. Well-stocked souvenir store. The free coffee/tea is OK - but don’t expect too much. Lest we forget.

  • A must visit. It's a very small museum but it's packed with historical information and objects from the war. Very emotional to see and read the stories of the people who suffered or died at the Japanese occupied camps. The displays are well presented and managed.

  • Really nice. More than I expected. Good Job Thailand.

  • A good deal of information on the railway here. Not too big, but has enough to keep you occupied for a couple hours if you really want to soak it all in. Definitely come if you're planning on seeing the bridge.

  • Be prepared. Sad. Catch the train and pick up car to reach the Museum. Incredible what the human beings do when they are under stress and pressure to choose whether to live or to die. War crimes, another horrible story.
