  • Brilliant, engaging and poignant museum detailing the Bridge over the River Kwai and Death Railway. Entered with only a basic knowledge of what happened and left with a huge amount of insight into all aspects of its history - the mark of a truly great museum. A must see to gain a better understanding of the "forgotten theatre" of WW2.

  • Such a sad place to visit, I went in search of my great uncles grave, and with help from the staff was given his resting place, unfortunately for me it is at the Burma end. Just walking through the museum and the cemetery is a real reality check, of what these men suffered. I believe it to be a must see for all.

  • 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.

  • I see reviews that say this is cheap. It isnt. Entry is overpriced. Souvenirs are double the price of anywhere else.....for the same thing. Its worth a visit and if the extra cost went to higher wages and upgrades, then it is acceptable but my feeling is that it doesnt. Pleasant, cool, informative but expensive...relatively speaking.

  • 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.
