A really good insight into the suffering so many men endured at the hands of the Japanese. Museum is the right length, not too long winded and gets the message across. If you like nature the additional walk beyond the hellfire pass is recommended especially this time of year when the temperature is cooler.

The history behind this spot is somber and disturbing, but the Australian and Thai governments came together and fashioned a respectful memorial to those who lost their lives building this section of the Thai-Burmese Railway. If you were drawn here (as I was) by 'The Bridge on the River Kwai', it won't take you long to figure out why the movie soft-pedaled this particular chapter of the war. The trail isn't incredibly long or difficult to walk -- rocks underfoot notwithstanding -- but take plenty of water to compensate for the likely 105 degree heat index that will give you an small inkling of what the men who worked here had to deal with. Sobering and essential, especially for WWII aficionados.

December 6 newly refurbished museum open. A touching memorial to those who slaved here. The steps down are all new sturdy no slip an easy walk for s senior. The handset and headphones tell you in pow own voices what happened in this hell. Worth doing some reading befor you go. Good time to go in December no bugs and much cooler than Bangkok.

Museum is well worth visiting. Amazing tribute to all the POWs, their strength & character evident, given the conditions they did (or did not) survive in. It was hot & humid walking the trail, but to imagine doing this everyday plus hard physical labor...humbling. A must do visit.

Unfortunately, the museum was undergoing remodeling, so we weren't able to see the exhibits. But the walking trail was open and it was worth it. Very well done with informational displays along the path. Quite a sobering sight, the crevice that was made by the POWs and local prisoners. Great job by the Australian and Thai governments to make sure the memory of this site remains.
