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.

I knew a very minimal amount about Changi, but after taking the audio tour, I was absolutely moved in respect to the details of hardship. The museum is well worth a visit and is about a 25min cab ride from the CBD.

This was really distressing. I could not leave quick enough. In retrospect I should probably not have gone. I had grown up hearing the stories of this time, from when my parents lived in Singapore in the 60s, but being confronted with it was a...More

The museum is easy to get to by public transport. Just take the MRT to Tampines and walk through to the bus terminal where you catch bus no. 29. The terminal is well signposted and the bus queues are very clearly signposted. This museum is...More

Not easy to reach but worth the effort. Conducted tours and audio tours available. A great insight into the war and the role of Singapore. Hard to leave with a dry eye

While the operators have made a valiant attempt to capture the story of Changi its difficult to get a true perspective given the museum is not located at the original site. So if you are expecting a visit to the prison this won't be the...More

Hi we were staying at Marina Bay and got a taxi from the hotel. It cost less than $25.00 for a return trip. The staff at the museum will call the return taxi for you.

Yes, definitely! I found that doing the audio tour in my own time, meant that I did not feel rushed, I was able to look at the exhibits in detail and take time to absorb the information. Give yourself 3-4 hours to get out... More
