It is a world war 2 site where Singapore was under control of Japanese and how Singaporean suffer and manage during that period of time. It does have all the wax figure of army generals, captain etc. in the various chamber such as surrender chamber. It is very life like and if you are not gutsy enough please go in... More

This was very interesting for those who like World War 11 history although it is a bit run down. The views from the top of the site are lovely and there are some nice walks around the area.

This was a repeat visit. It is definitely worth a visit however it seems to be getting a little run down around the edges. Lots of interesting exhibits about the role of Singpore and Sentosa in particular during the war. Interesting exhibit depicting the signing of the surrender documents. There is also interesting footage from the time. It was really... More

Not a bad place to visit to learn more about sentosa and it's ww2 history. Ifthis topic interests you it's worth the trip. It's not the greatest ww2 museum in the world but it's one to tick of the list.

Very close to Fort Siloso on Mount Imbiah are smaller war remains which are free to explore. They are a lot smaller, unrestored and don't feature mannequins. It will save you $12 and give you an atmospheric personal insight into Sentosa's military history. There are a few information panels and a nice view out across the straits. The remains you... More

Fort Siloso is a great part of Singapore history and the World wars. For $12 it is well worth the money. I would recommend taking advantage of the complimentary guided tour. My Tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and gave a great summary. The rest of experience is self guided where you walk around the coastal fort

Had no idea what to expect from Sentosa Island but didn't expect to enjoy one of its attractions quite so much. Fort Seloso was brilliant, neither of us are history buffs but this was fascinating. Dating from the 19th century this fort was also a WW2 fortification and still largely intact. We spent nearly 3 hours wandering around visiting the... More
