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.

“excellent, but some people need to learn respect”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

excellent, even my 10 year old enjoyed this tour, spoilt by people letting their children run wild in the chapel area while we were trying to convey a sense of respect to our son, and not getting their children out of our pictures.

“Makes you think”
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.

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.
