This is one of the many WWII museums on the fall of Singapore to Japan. It is a small museum but is very interesting, it has some great film footage of things that happened. The one attendant was a child when this all took place and has memories of things that took place. As with many of these museums, this... More

If you want to know more about the battle of singapore in WW2 then this is the place for you. over here there will give a details account of the battle that happened here. but because history is not my things thats why i sort of regret as there is just a colonial house here. nothing else

Housed in a beautifully restored Black and White in a park-like setting, this museum tells the history associated with the Japanese invasion and occupation of Singapore during WW II. Understanding the horrors people survived helps one to understand the reasons why it is drummed into Singaporeans not to take their freedom and fabulous quality of life for granted and why... More

This small museum is well worth a stop as you explore the Southern Ridges parks in Singapore. It's easily accessible right at the beginning of the canopy walk in Kent Ridge Park. The museum itself is in a restored old house and extends over 2 floors. There is plenty of information on the leadup to the Japanese invasion and the... More

Reflections is a small 2 floor museum detailing the last stand of the Malay regiment. It's a bit of a walk (800 m?) up a hill from the nearest MRT. Bring a UV umbrella and water. If you are a nature lover, proceed to the rest of Southern Ridges (Mt Faber Park, etc). For us, we walked down Hort Park... More

This small musuem is on top of the Bukit Chandu - the last fort defended by the famous Leftenant Adnan and his men from the Malay regiment. The usage of videos, films and narration makes up for its small size. I wished it had more things and artefacts on display about the well respected soldiers of the Malay regiment. But... More

We stumbled across this when walking the Southern Ridges and how lucky we were. It is a small step back in time. The building itself is an interesting Colonial Villa but the contents were a revalation. Anyone interested or studying WW2 will be facinated by this museum. There are well presented audio visual exhibits in addition to documentary artifacts. The... More

Yes, it is a long walk up a hill to get to Bukit Chandu, but if you don't mind a bit of exercise (or splurge for a taxi) it's a worthwhile visit for people interested in WW2 history. I was most impressed with the docents - they really wanted to ensure that you get the most out of out of... More
