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.

Well displayed and touching stories. The cafe next door is a must visit to refresh after the museum. They serve the best fries in Singapore

If you have a slight interest in the history of Singapore then go and experience this museum. You will be humbled by the stories of the survivors of the Japanese occupation.

We shared an audio guide (it's free to enter so had no problem with paying for the audioguide). It provides a lot of extra information and contect for each display. Without the audio guide you would still have plenty of information to take in. Noticed there is also a research/library section near the gift shop with even more information/articles/books. Taxi there is easy and we took the bus back to right outside our hotel in Chinatown, bus also goes through Orchard Rd, just takes a while. Do not miss out on visiting.

They have done a fabulous job with this memorial between the words, the pictures and the sounds you get a feel for what happened and what people do to one another
