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.

Easy to get to by bus - not for small children, very informative and moving, a great tribute to those lost during the war - military and civilian alike.

Not a large museum but with the photos and explanations of what happened in this war prison is very moving and breaks your heart.

I find it very hard to critique the Changi Museum and do it the justice it deserves. This is a very solemn place sharing many horrific memories of the victims of the atrocities committed by their captors. I feel that there is a separation between...More

An extremely interesting museum full of good exhibits and very moving stories of an awful time in Singapore's history. I would recommend making your own way there (the public transport system is fantastic and easy to use) so you are not limited by time which...More

We travelled here by bus, very easy and cheap (No2 from Chinatown to opposite the attraction). It was surprisingly small but packed a punch... It was very cleverly done; we did not use a guide or the audio (you only pay if you use either...More

I had visited the changi prison museum many years ago which was a very moving experience, whilst this experience was a sobering reminder for everybody about the tragedy of war, probably not as good as they original

The museum is well set out and easy to visit. Although not huge it will take at least an hour to go through and view all the exhibits. The place is somber and will evoke emotion even from the toughest. We owe the serviceman of...More

We learnt a lot during our visit to the Changi Museum. I knew a little of the history of Singapore during WWII but this was a great way to gain a better understanding. It was very interesting but also very sobering, especially listening to the...More

Went on the Trip Advisor Changi Museum POW Tour at $60 per person. This was not value for money. Even though the Tour Guide advised us that she had been doing this for the past 16 years I was disappointed that she did not tailor...More

There's very little of the original prison to see here. It's not even on the same site. In short it's not Changi. Yes there are a few pieces of original memorabilia but don't expect to see actual buildings or cells (although there is a cell...More

Hi there, Many people seem to do a guided day tour in conjunction with the museum tour. I'm not able to do they days they operate, is it still worth doing the audio tour of the museum only? thanks for any help and advise.

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

Ops, I missed your question. It only takes about 1.5 - 2hours to tour the whole place.
Another posting mentioned recently that the Changi Museum was closing for renovations soon. Did you hear any mention of that while you were in Singapore?
