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

It was worth the walk up a steep hill on a boiling hot day to visit this museum..the museum is small but we'll laid out with a number of informative videos.I was made to feel most welcome and handed a free booklet on singapore in the war.certainly one of the best museums that I have been to in singapore

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

Little hard to get, because nearest MRT station is at least 20-30min walk away(and you have to walk up to a hill), so bus or taxi are best options. Small Place, but offers some interesting things to see. Behind the place is Canopy trail. If you are in good shape, you can take (loooong) walk here to Southern Ridges and... More

Won't go through what the exhibition is about as several reviews have talked about it clearly and accurately. Personally I felt that potentially there was plenty of content but it wasn't delivered completely and could have been done with more impact to give visitors a more emersive experience to the psychological and physical turmoil the brave soldiers were going through,...

This is a simple setup, there is a small 2 storey bungalow at the hilltop at Pepys Road, off Pasir Panjang Road. On the inside is the museum, the first level shows the map of Malaya and Singapore and showed how the Japanese planned the invasion during WW2. There are many short videos you can choose from the list from... More

Compact museum focusing on the last stand in the battle for Singapore and the sacrifices made by the men who fought to the very end against impossible odds. Only four men survived by jumping over a channel of burning oil to tell the tale. The museum sits near the site of the final battle in a colonial villa that served... More

This makes an interesting and thought provoking morning out particularly if you are hoping to learn more about the history of World War 2 and Singapore’s role. This museum is off the main tourist trail, but it well worth combing it with a trip to The Old Ford Factory, The Changi Museum and The Kranji War Memorial to give a... More
