One of the best small scale museums I have visited. Gives a detailed, fascinating and very affecting account of the last battle for Singapore. A beautiful and peaceful setting on the Kent Ridge, so difficult to imagine the carnage of 74 years ago. Wonderful displays and superb audiovisuals. Watch the two downstairs before seeing the third one in the upstairs... More

The reflection of Bukit Chandu is the place that honors the memory of all those who fought against the Japanese during WWII. The museum have a little theater where you can experience what the people experienced during WWII. If you are travelling not by car, it's a little hard to get to, but it is worth it!

Nice museum about Singapore's role in the WW II. The items are exhibited in a modern way with a lot of multi-media.

It was a very interesting museum despite its small size. Very informative and really allows for visitors to have a better understanding of how the Malay Regiment contributed to the defense of Singapore in WW2. The staff at the museum were very helpful.

Nice quiet peaceful place. A place to understand/ reflect one of the fiercest battle that took place in Singapore during World War II. A place to understand Singapore history better. Videos are a highlight during your trip. Note: no food and drinks allowed in the premises. Time needed is about 60mins. Advisable to travel via Taxi as place can be... More

There are a number of WW2 themed exhibits throughout Singapore given the pivitol role played by this country at that time. This is a small one, focussing a particular event and is both uplifting and distressing at the same time. Its wonderfully pieced together and resides in a small villa some way out of down town - about a 15... More

The museum is small but interesting. It was quiet during our visit, not many visitors there. The exhibits are well-presented. Entrance fee for adults is SGD 2,- only. Located next to Kent Ridge Park. Parking is available nearby.

This small museum is an excellent tribute to the Malay soldiers who defended the Ridge during WWII. Combine it with visits to Siloso Point, The Battlebox and the Labrador Nature Reserve pillboxes for an even more complete sense of Singapore's WWII experience. It is very easy to find the Southern Ridges Trails from Bukit Chandu. The Canopy Walk and trail... More

This quaint site serves as a memorial and museum in remembrance of the Malay Regiment who fought and died, many to the last man, on the same grounds/area the museum sits on. Kent Ridge Park makes up the remnants of the forest and hills where these soldiers refused to run. This site is a must-see for those who appreciate history,... More

Once you are there at the small museum it is probably only a 1 - 2 hour visit. The museum is a restored black and white and tells the story of the Japanese invasion of Singapore in WWII , but primarily focusses on the Battle of Pasir Panjang , the site of the final stand of a Malay regiment against...
