Thailand–Burma Railway Centre information
This modern, informative museum explains Kanchanaburi's role in WWII and ensures that the deaths remain a tragedy, not a statistic. The galleries tell the history of the railway, how prisoners were treated and what happened after the line was completed. Upstairs is a display of wartime artefacts, including one POW's darts fashioned from old razors, and a diorama showing how Hellfire Pass got its name. Be sure to take time to watch the poignant video from POW survivors.
