Overview

This museum honors POWs who endured the Japanese occupation of Singapore in World War II. Their stories are told with an impressive collection of personal artifacts and news coverage. A British internee returned to the museum decades after the war to recreate the murals he’d painted on the walls of the original chapel – a moving insight into how those held prisoner found hope and comfort in any way possible.

Quiet, a little far for travellers, but a historic site very well restored. What is seen is only the Chapel scrapped up by the POWs interned there. Old photos bring you back to the hardships faced as POW in WW2. Very well done surviving photos.

If you are in a hurry, augment your visit with the audio tour. But if you have about three hours to spare, the audio tour doesn't really too much to the experience, because the exhibits tell quite a rich story. An excellent museum overall.

Hi we were staying at Marina Bay and got a taxi from the hotel. It cost less than $25.00 for a return trip. The staff at the museum will call the return taxi for you.

Yes, definitely! I found that doing the audio tour in my own time, meant that I did not feel rushed, I was able to look at the exhibits in detail and take time to absorb the information. Give yourself 3-4 hours to get out... More
