The Centre has been established to interpret - in a fair, balanced and non-partisan way - the story of the Thailand-Burma Railway, and to explain the significance of the two military cemeteries in Kanchanaburi. We aim to provide a resource for tourists to Kanchanaburi, designed and maintained to the highest international standards.

We are mindful of our responsibility to the local community and contribute to the local community by undertaking educational projects and other charitable works. Part of the Centre's income also goes towards funding for the development of the database of Allied prisoners of war who died in the Asia-Pacific region during the Second World War, and to conduct further research into the geography of the railway.

The Centre is operated by a Centre Manager and Managing Director, both expatriate residents of Kanchanaburi.
