A must visit place if you are keen on Singapore’s history. Lots of world war two artifacts on display and if you’re a true blue history buff, you may need a couple of hours here. Enjoy!

This little known museum is in a charming colonial bungalow on a hill. Read and watch a video on how the Malay Regiment fought a brave battle against the enemy. There are plagues with the names of those that perished.
