Wasnt sure what to expect from this but both my teenage daughter and I were very impressed. The exhibits are well laid out with informative films in air conditioned rooms. The exhibits are primarily focused on the history of the fort and the Japanese invasion but also provide wider context on the British involvement in Singapore as well as life... More

Amazing views from the walkway and very quick to get to the Fort. Not much in the way of advertising or signage though to get you there in the first place. And it's free now. Amazing Singapore (colonial) history - a must see for everyone. The walkway actually takes you into the end part of the Fort - we were... More

When we booked a holiday to Singapore I wanted to visit an attraction that had a connection with world war 2 because of it's major importance to that era. Fort Siloso is a two minute walk from Shangri-La hotel but is easily accessed by public transport, taxis and trams. You can view the site mainly for free via a sky... More

Very interesting and because it's in a less visited area not so many people. The attraction is on the outskirts of Sentosa This gives the whole area an atmosphere similar I suppose to what it was like when it was operational.

This is a must to see. We did not do the guided tour but took our time going thru each of the displays, videos and war bunkers. There is so much history here about World War 2 and the take over if Singapore. The surrender chambers are a must to visit with wax figures demonstrating the signing of the agreement.... More

After revamp, this free attraction has become one that offers visitors a very good experience. It spans a big area with lots of see/read. The Fort Siloso Skywalk is also a highlight. Do note that admission to the Surrender Chambers requires a fee, and tickets are not sold at the entrance of the Surrender Chambers.

Was where Japanese surrender in the Second World War. The photos were amazing and there were some scenes set out with real equipment and the dummies had copies of the faces in the... More

Found it interesting to know about real world war 2 experiences that this fort encountered. Surrender station was the best part.

We enjoyed this as a family. We did the guided tour and we found this great as we were given the history behind what we were seeing. We learnt some facts that we didn't know and found the guide friendly, informative and fun. We thought the kids may get a little bored doing this activity but they found it to... More
