Long Description:
There are 3 war museums in Kanchanaburi which may seem like more than needed for such a small town, but each has its own special "flavor". The new museum is excellent, especially for researching the soldiers. The JEATH museum is unique because it is built like one of the buildings from the actual POW camps. And if you like sprawling, dusty, new surprises around every corner museums, you're going to love this one. There are weapons and uniform items as well as artwork. Several unique items are for sale. The old building sits on the river practically at the bridge which probably makes it the most visited of the 3 museums. Ideally visitors will get to all 3 but if you only have time for 1, make it this one. I even sat on some bleachers on top of one of the buildings to see the reenactment show last December which gave me a tremendous view.
