The Thailand-burma Railway Centre, Kanchanaburi Reviews - Write a Review

  • This is excellent museum filled with information about the prisoners of war who were involved with building the railroad during World War II. I got very emotional at this museum while I read about the harsh conditions for the POWs & civilians. I feel this museum needs to be viewed by every citizen of the world. The cemetery across the street is a fitting memorial to the ones who lot their lives.on this effort.

  • Vey nice museum... sad to learn about the history but this museum is very thorough in documenting what happened on the death railroad. Lots of information to read about the areas history

  • Small museum but with lots of history to learn. Boards and information in the museum are in Thai and English. Could easily spend over and hour in the museum reading and understanding the history. They also offer service to family to find the names of their ancestors for free. Free tea or coffee at the end of visit too.

  • A small yet informative museum detailing the building of the "Death Railway" during WWII.

  • The museum is filled with interesting pieces of the history of Death railway. It is very interesting and informative, a visit to the war cemetery next door completes this visit.
