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.

Remembering the soldiers who were imprisoned here during the occupation. Accounts come not from academics but those who were really there and knew what it was like. Somewhat out of the way but definitely worth visiting.

This museum tells a distressing story with respect and dignity. It does explains quietly and succinctly what happened when the Japanese forces took over Singapore after the British surrender. It doesn't dwell on the horrific, although it leaves no doubt about the suffering of those...More

After Singapore fell to the Japanese in 1942, thousands were imprisoned in the Changi peninsula. This chapel and museum are dedicated to the memory of all of the civilians and prisoners of war who suffered during the Japanese occupation of Singapore from 1942 to 1945....More

This place is a little out of the way, especially if you’re staying centrally (it can take 45 minutes to an hour to reach). It is very interesting though if history, and especially WWII is your thing. I’d recommend paying the $8 for the audio...More

This is a small museum but it shows how we are able to cope under extreme pressure and torture. The murals should be better known and it is good that they are preserved in this museum. Definitely worth a visit.

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.
