    Outstanding War Museum
    This was definitely the highlight of our recent visit, especially for my husband who has a keen interest in war history. The quality and presentation of the displays are the best we have seen throughout our travels across South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand so far. Not to mention the relief experienced by the excellent air-conditioning in each featured building. The automated sound recordings enhance the atmosphere and overall experience. We highly recommend this experience to anyone, and suggest at least 2-3 hours to explore fully.

    Hidden gem for history buffs
    Fascinating history about the fall of Singapore, presented with exactly the right amount of detail and respect for all the participants. The monument is clean and preserved where it needs to be, and overgrown to show the passage of time elsewhere. The mannequins in dioramas are freakishly lifelike at times. There is a lift to the beautiful skywalk over the jungle that takes you to the top of the hill on the way in and allows a slow progressive downhill walk through the site. We liked the surrender chamber display.

    An insight into Singapore's history
    The Fort was a really interesting way to spend a couple of hours - we were really hot so didn't see all of it but enjoyed the exhibition in the Surrender Chamber. Vending machines for cold drinks dotted around the area too. Also appreciated the air condition in the different buildings! Not many staff around and quite a bit of walking (some uphill and stairs) so just be aware of that. A really great way to do something different on Sentosa.

    Hidden gem of a museum
    This museum really exceeded my expectations - especially considering that it's completely free. There was a lot to see. The museum management were also really thoughtful in setting up videos to watch and other artefects with a lot of reading, in airconditioned rooms so that guests can take their time to take in the artefacts. There is also maps available so that you don't miss anything along the way. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here.

    Important part of Singapore history
    History of Singapore during World War II. If you are interested in learning about a country then this place is a must. Large garden area with the actual bunkers and underground tunnels. There are also mannequins/wax figures to simulate what the scenes may have looked like - there are voice recording to hear what is happening, and many written info plaques to read. There is a museum containing lots of history.

    Fort History
    Went to Sentosa island and wasn't interested in the amusements but we were determined to walk Fort Siloso even in the heat. We took the skywalk and had some great advantage points. The fort was built in the 19th century and is still in very good shape today. There is a lot to see, but one good thing is there are plenty of water stations to refill your bottles along the way. Huge number of exhibitions and off the beaten path trails. If your going for the day or staying on Sentosa, make a visit to the fort a must see activity. Highly recommended.

    Great history with lots of shade from the sun - something different from the beach scene
    We walked from the Siloso Point cable car station, went across the Skywalk, that was already fun. The park is pretty shaded, with benches that have fans (you need to press the button to turn then on) It was quite interesting to read up on the history of this fort. The area is actually quite large. A good break from the beach scene.

    Military but Calm
    Amazing place where you can learn the singapore military history. Calm environment with nice views. There are some statues and historical places which reflect some old memories. Need to walk for few KM to cover the area. Recommend to visit when you have whole day free.

This adventure is free of charge. A long sky walk 3-5 minutes leads to a place with a real battle. Many cannons, soldiers, WWII museum, videos about battles with shouting and shooting sounds.
