First part of the tour is a steep walk and can get quite hot. Indoor exhibits are air conditioned. Free shuttle returns you to... More

The access to the centre of this attraction is made easy by tram, which leaves you to wander around the various buildings, tunnels and open sites to learn about the fall of Singapore during WW2. The photos, films and audio presentation provide a real in depth into how the Japanese won this part of the war and the effect on... More

You can ride the Tram or the bus so you don't have to walk all the way there. It's very cool, a lot of history in this place. Recommended to all.

Fort Siloso was built in 1879 is currently one of the last preserved forts in Singapore and the only coastal one hence, I personally feel it is a must-see for visitors who want to learn more about Singapore's military history and will help you understand what we went through in WWII. It houses exhibits divided into zones that will tell... More

It's a bit of a walk from the beach to get up to Siloso. Take the tram up. Once you get there is a nice place for a view and pictures of the historic old cannons being used. There's an indoor laser tag skirmish which was a blast for my 7 year old son!

A tour of Fort Siloso is a must for history buffs. Located in the Western most corner of Sentosa Island, Fort Siloso offers an engaging glimpse of the military history of Singapore up to and including the Japanese occupation in the second world war. The fort is quiet and mostly outdoors and offers kids the chance to explore tunnels and... More

This is especially interesting for the British who can see what our soldiers faced when they were posted here. For Singaporeans, this is a very important place showing how their city developed, and why they wanted independence. Other nationalities will find it a useful introduction to Singapore’s past. When this was an actual fort, life was tough. During your visit... More
