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

There is nothing wrong with this facility but the presentations are very dated & the area is not well maintained.

We learned a lot about a specific part of Singaporean history at Fort Siloso, namely that of WWII. If you're looking for a broader history lesson, perhaps you may want to check out other museums first. I have no idea why there is laser tag at a historical site such as this. It seems like they're trying a bit too... More

I like to know what happened in a place and understand some of its history, this spot does a great job in explaining the recent wars that affected Singapore so profoundly. Exhibits getting a little run down but worth a look.

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.
