The Jeath War Museum
The name JEATH is derived from countries which
engaged in the WWII death railway construction from 1942 to 1945,
which included Japan, England, America, Australia, Thailand and Holland.
Located in the area of Wat Chai Chumphon, the museum is a reconstruction
of the POW’s thatched detention hut with cramped, elevated bamboo
bunks. On the wall of the huts, photographs and illustrations of the
POW’s living conditions are on display. POWs who survived from the
camp have donated items to enhance the museum’s atmosphere and authenticity.
The museum opens daily from 8.30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission fee is 30
