Bukit Chandu is a very peaceful 'memorial' to the significant contribution of Malaysian soldiers on the side of the British during WW2. The location is easier to get to than you may at first imagine. When you reach the villa which is the site of exhibit you'll find yourself in a quiet, reflective place, with an authentic collection for you... More

I recall being told that there used to be an opium factory or processing facility of some kind. However, today this spot is known more for the last stand (Battle at Pasir Panjang) made by the Malay Regiment against the advancing Japanese forces during WWII. This high ground was the last point before the approach to the main ammunition and... More

Took my parents to visit this exhibit. You can park fairly close to the museum which is located up a steep hill. Lots of interesting information about WW2 and the battle that took place there. Great interactive museum with a film and an audio visual information show. Also moving family accounts. It is also housed in a beautiful building with... More

One of the best small scale museums I have visited. Gives a detailed, fascinating and very affecting account of the last battle for Singapore. A beautiful and peaceful setting on the Kent Ridge, so difficult to imagine the carnage of 74 years ago. Wonderful displays and superb audiovisuals. Watch the two downstairs before seeing the third one in the upstairs... More

The reflection of Bukit Chandu is the place that honors the memory of all those who fought against the Japanese during WWII. The museum have a little theater where you can experience what the people experienced during WWII. If you are travelling not by car, it's a little hard to get to, but it is worth it!

Nice museum about Singapore's role in the WW II. The items are exhibited in a modern way with a lot of multi-media.

It was a very interesting museum despite its small size. Very informative and really allows for visitors to have a better understanding of how the Malay Regiment contributed to the defense of Singapore in WW2. The staff at the museum were very helpful.

Nice quiet peaceful place. A place to understand/ reflect one of the fiercest battle that took place in Singapore during World War II. A place to understand Singapore history better. Videos are a highlight during your trip. Note: no food and drinks allowed in the premises. Time needed is about 60mins. Advisable to travel via Taxi as place can be... More

There are a number of WW2 themed exhibits throughout Singapore given the pivitol role played by this country at that time. This is a small one, focussing a particular event and is both uplifting and distressing at the same time. Its wonderfully pieced together and resides in a small villa some way out of down town - about a 15... More
