First of all, if you have zero interest in history, or world war II history in particular, you are likely to find this place very boring. For those who are remotely interested answer the question of "Why the ___ (fill in the blanks for adjectives) did British lost Singapore - the strongest fort of British Empire in South East Asia...

Reminds me of stories my grandmother used to tell. Every year this period, I would follow NUS for a walk that willl end here. Always good as a reminder of how Singapore was like in the past. And how people lived before our time. How the plants of Kent Ridge got there and how the high look out points were... More

Really nicely detailed museum about the Malay regiments and the fall of Singapore in WW2. Not usually my thing, but well worth a visit. 2 dollars entrance. Very nice docents. Extremely helpful. I liked that everything was labelled and thoughtfully documented. A bad period in Singapore history.

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

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
