WWII Museum information
Perhaps the best thing to say about this place is that the view of the Death Railway Bridge is great. The top of the tower in the northwest corner is the best viewpoint. The museum itself is an eclectic and ramshackle but well-intentioned collection of artefacts. Most relate to the war, including trains, Japanese motorcycles and old helmets. Other rooms contain items of interest to the owners, including cigarettes, jade carvings, gems and paintings of former Miss Thailands.
Though its educational value is limited, just about everyone will find something of interest here. Between the two buildings is a stupa with coloured bowls decorating the exterior and a large bell hanging inside.
