Must for understanding Singapore history

Very nice place to visit : can be accessed through one of the part around. It gives a good understanding of the Japanese invasion during the 2nd world war.

Took my boys to Bukit Chandu to give them a 1st hand view of where one of the most fierce battle ever took place during the WW II between the Malay Regiment and the Imperial Japanese soldiers. My boys have read book on the battle of BUkit Chandu but seeing it with their own eyes and being there where the... More

We chanced upon Reflections at Bukit Chandu (Malay for Opium Hill), a restored two-storied black and white colonial bungalow, when we were walking to the Kent Ridge Canopy Walk from Hort Park. It is an interpretative centre for visitors to reflect upon Singapore’s heritage of heroism – courage, loyalty and honour of the Malay Regiment in defending Singapore, free to... More

Small museum giving insight into the fall of Singapore. Came away with an understanding of Singapore geography and Japanese bicycles! Open on Sunday's, sign says free in December.

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.
