The JEATH War Museum in Kanchanaburi

The JEATH War Museum

If the cemeteries bear witness to the carnage of the 'Death Railway', the JEATH Museum bears witness to the suffering of those that fell during its construction. The 'open-air' JEATH (Japan, England, Australia, Thailand and Holland) Museum was built in 1977 by a Thai abbot in the style of the huts used to imprison prisoners of war. The museum contains bunks and pictures of actual soldiers who died alongside articles on the site and other authentic items. The result is a picture of cramped squalor which gives visitors a genuine insight into the suffering the soldiers went through.

Details: The JEATH War Museum is open daily 8.30 - 16.30
Admission fee 10 Bath , Foreigner Fee 30 Baht.

How to get there: The museum is inside Wat Chai Chumphon near the TAT office on Saeng Chuto Road and is accessible by Songtaew (10 Baht) and Tuk-Tuk (20 Baht) from the centre of town.

The thatched detention hut with cramped, elevated bamboo bunks, contains photographic, pictorial and physical memorabilia dating from the Second World War. POWs who survived the ordeal have donated items from that period to substantiate the museum's authenticity.
