“Could be better”

The Thailand-Burma Railway Centre
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The museum is located opposite the CWGC Cemetery and entrance is free. The exhibits and the explanations that go with them are interesting and thought provoking, albeit a little brief at times. This may be because the museum is privately owned and has been passionately created by the owner. A visit here is better than not visiting a museum, especially if you cannot get to the Hellfire Pass Museum. An hour or so is probably sufficient for the visit.

We went here after being on the train . Maybe suggest visit here first then the train to appreciate more what these poor men had to do to achieve a railway. It was very moving and thought provoking. Don't miss it!!

Rod has done a great job of capturing a few moments in history so that we can all experience the horror that was the building of the DEATH RAILWAY!

A moving and detailed representation of the building of the death railway. Not to be missed. There is a small cafe as you come out on the second floor.
