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.

We intended to be a tourists for a day and moves around some interesting places of attractions and this was one of the attractions we visited. The only minus point is the location of the place.

We took a tour which was well worth it. Entry to the museum is free but with a guide who was very helpful and knowledgable, we learnt much more than if we had gone on our own.

The messages left from relations of those killed at Changi prison camp during the second world war made us so emotional, and humble everyone who visits Singapore should see this and understand what these poor British, Australian and commonwealth soldiers went through

It covers the history of 2nd world war and specially the involvements of Malays and Singapore in the War. Very good informations given. But skipped the role of Azad Hind Force (or Indian National Army), whose sacrifice is pioneer in the Indian Independent movement.

This was a great in sight into how and what the inmates had to put up with. It isn't a very large museum but has some interesting facts. It is a little disappointing that you can't see any of the actual prison. Worth visiting and has a fantastic cafe next door.
