    Kanchanaburi/Jeath War Museum

    Kanchanaburi/Jeath War Museum;

    Kanchanaburi

    Now just to confuse the tourists there are actually 2 Jeath War Museums in Kanchanaburi, this one is about 300 meters from the River Kwai Railway Bridge, the other War Museum is about 3 kilometers away in the grounds of a temple at the junction of the Kwai Yai and Kwai Noi Rivers.

    Entrance is 40baht and not a lot is explained and construction work is still going on, the picture of the Antique guns shows that they were locked up so nobody could steal them, but the bombs were just keft laying around on the tables.

    On all their signage they had the word "Jeath" on it, this I believe is to try and confuse tourists into thinking this is the proper one when actually it is supposed to be called the "World war 2 Museum.



    The buildings are quite ornate.



    Some of the original Trains and carriges are there on display but getting a bit rusty and tatty.

















    From TAT

    Art Gallery and War Museum

    Located not far away from the Bridge on the River Khwae is a private museum which features the World Wide II story and art objects such as war weapons, army uniforms, photographs, jewelry, etc. The museum is open daily from 7.00 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. Admission fee is 40 baht/person.
