Amidst the high priced rides and over-touristy attractions sits this free historical fort. You can pay to see the surrender chamber ($6) which we did, but if you've already been to battle box or the Singapore museum there is nothing new in there. Lots of cannons, bunkers and 19th century artefacts of the time this fort guarded the marina. Also... More

The exhibition does not open till 10 which caught us out. We used the skywalk and climbed it before 9 meaning no one was there to tell us. Once we got in it was very good. Dioramas and antiques with videos meant that it was very informative. I would do it again.

Next to the Shangri La Hotel you may look up to see a platform and wonder what it is. Take the lift to the top (I mistakenly took the stairs in 30 degree heat - big mistake) and follow the walkway to the Fort and all of the wartime related displays and video footage. There are massive guns there which... More

This hidden gem at the end of Santosa island is a great place to visit in order to see Singapore's history and learn about the Japanese invasion. You can go in the tunnels and see all the areas of the fort. There's a really interesting video in one of the out buildings that explains the history of the fort and... More

Sentosa Island may be the state of fun, but it is full of history too! Take the Sentosa Cable Line to Fort Siloso and explore the historic site. It is free to walk around with the exception of the Surrender Chambers (S$6 adult/ S$4.50 child). There is plenty to explore from the informative exhibitions to the buildings and canons.

A place for any age or gender, especially those who are interested in military history. From the replicate cannons to the realistic wax figures to the restored fortifications, everything was extremely informative and encapsulates the history in a realistic way. The entrance was at the end of the Fort Siloso Skywalk and there you will be greeted by cannons and... More

Such a shame that a place like Fort Siloso is not being looked after last visited 18 years ago and it looks like no maintenance has been done since then. It is such an important place and should not be left in such a poor state.

Fort Siloso is a very nice part of Sentosa Island where greenery meets the beach, what a contrast. I look forward to staying at Siloso on my next visit to Sentosa.
