This is an interesting site with a long and venerable history. From a military point of view, it's importance is undeniable. During the Second World War it was used as a prisoner of war camp, finally ceasing to be of military use in the 1970s. The visitor experience needs to be thought again though. Although fairly small in area, the... More

We went to discover the old fort and did not participate in the indoor games they have. Loved the way they have described everything and the fact that we had to discover everything on our own using the map they provided. Wonderful experience.

Part of the old fort has been converted into a mini indoor laser skirmish range. It is a bit small, but nonetheless it was fun chasing the other team around the place and shooting them. Would have done it a couple of more times, but the prices for each time were a little too exxy, so that was the only... More

Waste time and money moving fromthe Changi Museum to Fort Siloso to find it close for some stupid Halloween preparations. This was on 3rd Oct 2014. What a disappointment and how strange that the person who too $5 of me to enter the island in my taxi didn't warn me. Of course by the time I did find out my... More

Was looking forward to this on my visit to Sentosa. Nothing until I actually got to the entrance (which is a reasonable walk from the Sentosa cable car in 35 degree weather) suggested that it was closed (there were billboards that were clearly put out on a daily basis in several places on the island). It is apparently closed to... More

I agree with some reviews in that it lost is appeal of the past with the gimmicky laser game and most of the attraction currently closed including the museum plus the gift shop gone. The history and replica cannons are what we want to see. That's why it is different. I HOPE THEY FIX THIS ATTARCTION UP AND MAKE IT... More

The Fort was a great place to visit with the family. I didn't get enough time to fully explore the sight but what we did get to see was exciting and educational.

On 9 Sep 2014, I led a group of children to the Indoor Maze Combat Skirmish Adventure at Fort Siloso that was funpacked with thrill combat action. You can hear the children screaming with fun and excitement and running happily around the indoor maze amidst the rapid firing of their toy machine guns. While the children were having fun inside...

A must see in Singapore to get an idea of the history of the place in WW2. Loads to see and do but now complete with a laser tag game in the tunnels. Which I'm sure is awesome. But it's the history we wanted to do and the gift shop for WW2 things for my little boy but it's gone... More

Fort Siloso is one of the more quiet places in Singapore. Explore the whole fort. There are some very interesting guns and cannons to see. You also can walk into several buildings and bunker complexes. Dioramas with life-sized figures display service scenes from Victorian age and before WW II. Enjoy surrender chamber. It´s air-conditioned. Wax figures show the unconditional surrender... More
