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.

In amongst the wealth, youth and frenetic activity that is modern-day Singapore its easy to forget the horrors that were visited on Singapore and its people during WW2. The Changi Chapel & Museum should be on every visitors programme, not only to understand the terrible times had by the allies but also the atrocities meted out to thousands of locals........ Fans of the BBC's 'Tenko' programme will also be moved by this place, my partner was astonished when working out the the link!
Not too difficult to get too from Singapore city - MRT to Tanah Merah then Bus No.2 to the museum, the stop is opposite the museum after the modern day Woman's Prison - we found the Chinese bus driver and the various passengers more than happy to help us!
Its free to enter but we suggest the audio guide for a small fee. The little shop with helpful staff is well worth a visit afterwards, but if you want bottled water buy it from the shop not the outdoor restaurant - nearly double the price there!
Would recommend a visit here to anyone, perhaps tying it in with the Kranji Cemetary and Ford Factory for the full story

I found the location a little inexessible for something like this, and when i arrived I found very very little. Its wortha trip, but if you are on limited time I'd recommend going to fort cannington

moments in history, like this need remembered.
Easy to get there, take the MRT to Tanah Merah, then get bus, No 2, at the stop on the opposite side of the road. The museum is the stop after the 'real prison'. When we went, we were the only tourists on the bus, and the driver called to us, when it was time to alight.
A nice half day can be spent walking, with audio commentary (small charge) thru the museum. There is also a cafe adjoining, good food, that the locals utilise. Well worth the effort.

This is as sacred to Aussies as Gallipoli. It has moved since I first visited and has been done up well. The history and sense of despair and hope is overwhelming- a must for all Ausssies.

Free entry, could hire an audio box for $8.
Well laid out and an education.
Had files of all soldiers imprisioned there. Need to allow at least half a day as it was a bit of a hassle getting there by bus but well worth it.
While in the area a visit to Changi village and beach is worth it. Good cheap food available.
