This museum is located in Kanchanaburi and just a short walk away from the River Kwai bridge. The Museum is about the Death Railway as well as other interesting pieces to do with the War. The word "Jeath" comes from the six main Nationalities that worked on the line. They were Japan, England, Australia, America, Thailand, Holland. The Museum is located on the banks of the River Kwai inside the Temple "Wat Chai Chumphon" The Bamboo Hut that you see in the Museum is an exact replica of the one the men were forced to live in. There are old Cars & Motorbikes, Photos, and written accounts of what their life was like. I found it an interesting Museum.
In the yard, I was lucky enough to come across a big Iguana. I was told he was 15 years old.
