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.

We visited Fort Siloso not really knowing much about the site apart from it being situated next door to our hotel. It was amazing. Very historical . 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

This is the place for History enthusiasts. If you like 2nd world war history , visit this place for the large collection of British armaments, rare photographs of wartime Singapore. If you have tired feet, use the paid electric car service. Entry by lift is a joy in itself ,since you pass through a beautiful bridge with overview of island... More

the walk on the bridge, that connects the tower and top of the Siloso fort is amazing! There are replicas of the guns placed at their respective original positions. The entrance to the chambers is paid. A well worth visit for history lovers.

Although it might be out of the mainstream, it is worth going to this Fort as a first or second stop reflecting the Battle of Singapore. The fortifications are very well-preserved and it is one of the best 'modern' coastal fortifications I have visited outside the USA. More than that, it offers a very comprehensive view of many different aspects... More

very interesting place. take the lift up and walk along a concrete walkway to Fort Siloso. There are a number of buildings set up with manaquines in world war 2 uniforms. You listen to voices of what was happening at that time. It was for free. I was glad i had taken the time to visit.

A free walk to learn the history of Singapore- well worth it. Nice and leisurely stroll at your own time and benches along the way to rest your tired feet. Well-maintained; well- explained. Paid to enter the surrender chamber. Worth going. The wax figures were life- like and the story became more real. The view from the relatively newly opened... More

This was my third time to try and get into Fort Siloso. The first time it was used for a Halloween Spooktacular, the second time I went there were repairs under way. I was therefore to finally get to see around it - I had an excellent guide called Mimi, his history might not have been PhD level but he... More
