Really not sure what to make of this place! There’s some really cool stuff, a helicopter and cars and some statues but it’s the strangest layout, there’s random stalls selling things in the middle and it’s not really clear what it’s a museum of! That...More

Not to be confused with its competitor museum located nearer the Bridge, this original museum operated by the local monks and a prominent donor is a MUCH better representation of the POW ordeal.

VERY disappointing exhibition of poor-quality photos and aging artifacts. The other museum near the POWs cemetery would be a better bet but our tour never went there.

It worth the entrance fee even though it is pretty cheap. No real sense of history, a meander through a ramshackle site with a variety of items from the war period. Honestly I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone, I learnt nothing from the visit.

The other museum near the cemetery is worth the time and effort. This museum is disorganized and disjointed. Fails to tell the story. A couple of interesting displays but really not worth the effort to visit Could be better with a total make-over and needs...More

This is not the real JEATH museum. It is a private museum that attracts customers because of its position near to the bridge. Tourist trap.

If you have any interest in the history of WW11 in this area this small museum is interesting. It details the various battles and movements of the warring parties and the impact on the country. We found it both informative and sobering. Of greater impact...More

The museum contains an eclectic mix of items, some related to the war and others seem quite random and have no context (ie a picture wall of the previous Miss Thailand winners). The exhibits do not appear to be maintained so are in poor condition....More

The acronym JEATH stands for the primary nationalities involved in the construction of the railway: Japanese, English, Australian, American, Thai and Holland, whereas the Thai name is Phíphítháphan Songkhram Wát Tâi (Wat Tai War Museum).

The museum is a reminder of aspects of WWII that are often forgotten about; POWs in all countries experienced numerous brutalities however this museum details history that so many are unaware of. It is a dated museum that is chaotically laid out but you can...More

As far as I recall, the sign gave no more information than can be gained from reading about the bridge on the Internet.
