At World War II and JEATH War Museum, learn about the Death Railway, part of the Thai-Burma railways built from 1942 to 1943. Thousands of Allied prisoners of war were forced under Japanese demands to construct the railway, and over 12,000 died from the brutal treatment and conditions. In the museum's first section, explore a site built to imitate POWs' quarters at the time. Inside the building, learn in more detail about the construction of the railroad. The second section displays artifacts and items such as paintings, drawings, photos, weapons, tools, and maps.

  • What is then place? It is embarrassing to visit. It looks like they assembled it 40 years ago and walked away. A complete disaster. Have a look just to see how bad it is.  more »
  • It costs very little to enter the museum but it is very disjointed! We had a giggle at the wax models of the world leaders.They look very odd. I can't say that I'd recommend a special trip to visit...  more »

  • Very very dirty, a lot of dust. The direction seems to don't take care of the old weapons, motorbike and so.... This stuff are in museum to be safe. In this case, they will be better in a collection to save the History. But the place is nice and have a lot of potential!! You had to pay for the toilet!
  • Interesting place to visit and learn some history. If you can, tour the area with a guide. The area can be busy with all the peeps taking selfies on the bridge. Recommended!
