JEATH War Museum commemorates the suffering of those forced to construct the Death Railway, built in the 1940s by Allied prisoners of war and Asian civilian laborers. JEATH stands for Japan, England, Australia, Thailand, and Holland, the nationalities involved in the task, and the facility itself is designed to imitate the huts where POWs lived. You'll learn about the Japanese-run construction of the railway that linked Thailand and Burma, during which over 12,000 POWs died. Exhibits display photos and artifacts dating from World War II.

  • Interesting place. Slightly run down but still very much worth visiting for an insight into what happened here all those years ago. If you are visiting the bridge then you really must go here too as it is just 50 meters away. The staff were very helpful and friendly
  • I liked the museum. It was simple nice direct. Entry fees was also very reasonable needed to maintain the museum. It looked like a private museum without govt funding. So for what it's worth, it was a nice. Recommended to come.
