Owner description: This museum honors POWs who endured the Japanese occupation of Singapore in World War II. Their stories are told with an impressive collection of personal artifacts and news coverage. A British internee returned to the museum decades after the war to recreate the murals he’d painted on the walls of the original chapel – a moving insight into how those held prisoner found hope and comfort in any way possible.

This place is quite a way out of the centre but persist. The museum is nearly all pictures and videos with some replicas of the chapel etc. The whole place is eerie and it feels like a place where man did terrible things to man. It is a very moving experience

Visiting the Changi Chapel and Museum is a pilgrimage for most Australians. Its a simple presentation & a bit hard to get to by public transport, but worth the bother & moving to visit.

Museum and chapel will affect different people in different ways, but you will be affected. Get the audio for $8.

Simple but effective display. With pictures, service records, and audio tour. Easy to get to (involves one train and one bus)

I lived in Australia for a few years and loved the 'Changi' TV series, which covered a group of women interned in Singapore's infamous prison.

So it was with great interest we visited the Chapel and Museum, and I have ot say the whole experience was typically Singaporean commercially correct: they completely understated the brutality of the place under Japanese rule. Presumably watered down so as not to offend the Japanese visitors.

Sellout.
