This is the place where the surrender of Singapore was formally executed and it now houses a museum of the occupation. The room where the surrender deed was formally executed has been preserved; there is replica furniture because the originals are in a museum in Canberra. Having seen the rows of Anzac graves in Kanchanaburi, we didn't subscribe to the view they should hand it back. Even more fascinating were exhibits on daily life; the Japanese wished to impose their culture and there are school books and even money in Japanese script but unique to Singapore. It's a way out of town, so worth sharing a taxi (it's up near the causeway and the zoo). Very well worth the effort and expense (the museum itself is very cheap but getting there will cost a bit).
