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.

Reviewed March 5, 2013

My husband wanted to visit here as he had a friend who had been here through the war,its amazingly quiet when you arrive,set out museum style and you can get audio to guide you round but we ended up just reading and looking at everything,set out really well so easy to follow,the chapel and the chapel paintings make you sit and realise the reality of it all.well worth visiting if your in Singapore.

“History”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

WOW - Stories very well told. We didn't take the tape - we just walked our way around and read all the stories. It is free admission. We caught a taxi both ways and it was approx A$10 each way from our city hotel. Worth a visit if you are interested in history.

“Journeys Pte Ltd Changi Museum War Trails”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Affilitated with The Original Singapore Walks.

Excellent coach-enabled walking tour of Changi Chapel and Museum as well as other significant locations relevant to war time Singapore.

There is nothing like having an informed tour guide. The tour leader customised the tour with stories pertinent to each of the four nationalities represented by our small group of nine in addition to the situation of Singaporeans, Malays, the Japanese, Chinese, and British Allies.

Because our time at the museum was taken up by the guided tour, a further return visit would give the opportunity to study displays for ourselves. However time was given for quite rememberance at the chapel.

“So glad we went”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Did the audio tour of Changi Chapel and Museum and it was was so worth the trip out. Museum has many original artefacts from the time of the fall of Singapore and so much information. As an Australian and growing up with this as part of our history really enjoyed our visit.

“Lest We Forget”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

It had moved since my last visit in 1986. The Chapel has been rebuilt and a modern museum. It is full of original artifacts and the memories of those who were there. Everybody should visit this site.
It is easy to reach on the No. 2 Changi Village bus in Bras Basah Rd or a taxi for about S$15.
