Lots of very informative and some emotional displays. Very well presented and logically displayed. Leaving the fort the bolder art and the paintings on the road and walls were great along with the additional information plaques. Inspired me to do further reading.. Loved the Tiger!

To reach this museum we took the lift and then the high walkway with fantastic views of downtown and the beaches. A self guided tour at your own leisurely pace into the world of the fort and its people. On very hot days the buildings offer shade and tranquillity At times very moving to read the stories of the men who valiantly tried to save Singapore from the Japanese.

Nearby to Fort Siloso is Tanjong Rimau where one can take part in a guided tour to observe the marine creatures during the low tide there. I joined one such tour two years ago. This tour can be booked online with the Sentosa Development Corporation. It is conducted by volunteers and the tour is officially called Siloso Headland Intertidal Programme. Timing of the tour depends on the tide condition.
It was about two hours long and we were introduced to many marine creatures such as the crabs, snails, sea corals etc. We also walked part of the beach to learn about the type of rocks found here such as the conglomerate rock. There are several small shallow caves formed among the rocks next to the beach.
We could also see Reflections by the Keppel Bay and the brick-red Berlayer Beacon. Together with the green Tanjong Rimau Beacon seen here, they act as the navigational markers for ships that enter and exit the channel between Labrador and Sentosa.
It is advisable to wear aqua shoes when doing this tour.

What an incredibly fascinating and interesting place! I spent three very enjoyable hours wandering around most all of the site, enjoying the displays and soaking up the general atmosphere. The whole set-up is extremely well-presented with good information, and provides the visitor with many interesting and varied displays from across much of the colonial period during which the fort was in use. And it was not too busy, either, although that may have been due to the hot weather. The overhead walkway leading up to the fort provided a well-designed start to the experience.

Highly recommended!

The last time I visit this place was already many years ago. Now since the pandemic and lesser crowd, I decided to revisit this place again.

Located at the edge of Sentosa Island, you could reach here from Siloso Beach by walking to the end. The entrance is beside Shangri-La Resort.

You could reach here via road, skywalk or trail; you choose the way. Here you could learn the history of Sentosa during war time and Japanese surrender.

The place probably old enough but still have all the facilities including air-conditioning for some exhibits spaces. This is definitely a great place to explore the island, not just here for the beach.

The way finding directions at Sentosa was attrocious. Once we asked, we took the escalator down to the Casino Car park to catch the "C" bus which is a free service that does the Sentosa/Fort Siloso loop every 15 minutes. Easy once you know! The fort has been well preserved and the interpretative displays were excellent. Seeing the representation of the surrender was heart breaking. The walkway experience was also brilliant with great views. So glad we went and good to get away from the hustle and bustle for a while.

Fort Siloso is a huge place where you will need about 2 to 3 hours to cover the entire area. Be sure to visit the Museum, the tunnels, command post, barracks and the Surrender Chambers. Take your time and learn about the WWII history of Singapore.

The skywalk is a beautiful and easy way to start the tour and avoid a lot of incline in the Singapore heat and humidity! The fort tells the story of Singapore during war time. We spent most of the time walking around and exploring. There are a few buildings with informative displays and air conditioning. We probably spent about two hours at the site, and we probably saw close to everything.

As much as we live and respect history, this place seems neglected..no excitement whatsoever?
Sadly, the history is rich but the presentation lacks creativity.
Even museum has interactive mode.
Go visit USA to see how they sell these historical places or even China or Japan, ...they are great in selling historical sites.

Have a map with a stamp for example...so kids can go get to each point of interest and get a stamp on the map.

Great walk and very interesting exhibits with explanations and views. It’s free which is also a bonus. Could spend a few hours at least if the girlfriend had not dragged me away! If going, go via the sky walk it’s great.
