    The exhibits provided a nice summary of how life was like during WWII from the perspective of the locals, the Australians and the British. It showcased the innovativeness of the people during the war, and also how art / music played a part in lifting the spirits of the people. A replica of St. Luke’s chapel is present with the 5 murals recreated. A wonderful tribute to all those who died fearlessly during the war.

    While waiting for a friend decided to make a detour and made a pitstop at this chapel. It doesn’t have the scale of Killing Fields but for a Singaporean it’s rich on history and tells a the tale of the prisoners of war during world war 2 in Singapore. It’s really Singapore’s heroes during that time. I actually enjoyed the serenity at the chapel.

    Not as big as I was expecting and fairly simple but still lots of good information. If you’re interested in the subject matter, try to also watch the Changi dramatic mini series made by ABC Australia which I thought was very good and thought provoking. The Battlebox museum and tour (in Singapore) also overlaps with the information here regarding the events leading up to the surrender so that’s worth doing as well. They have audio guides available for $8 which take you through nicely.

    If you wanna know about the history and how Singapore survive the war you must visit this place. Closes at 5PM. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is a small outlet to buy books or souvenirs. There are paid audio tours.

    I feel really proud when seeing the how Singapore is now after seeing how it was there after the world war.

    A small museum and a chapel, tucked away in a quiet area, that carry painful history. The staff were both kind and professional. Our group was led by a small robot that gave descriptions in each sections of the museum. It’s an important institution that reflect the Singaporean and Changi histories.

    Good museums tell good stories, and this place has a big story that crosses many divides. It offers a wide ranging perspective on the invasion of Singapore and its subsequent impact on the people who were caught up in the events. Changi has an infamous role in the occupation of Singapore, but it is viewed as part of a bigger story, that weaves the experience of the inmates of Changi prison, with ordinary Singaporeans. Any visit will be enhanced with the excellent audio tour equipment offered by the museum.

    Went to the newly-revamped Chapel & Museum. Audio guides and more dioramas. Interesting artifacts on loan and gifted to NHB. Wish more POWs would be remembered. My father was w the RAF. Captured at Java, sent back to SG. He was in one of the work parties that were sent abroad. He went to Nakama, Japan to work in the mines. Life was equally miserable. Think it was only in the 1990s that the War Department recognised him & his friends. Their story isn’t captured. I will find a way to make that complete. Apart from that, please go for a reflection of what resilience looks like & what power encompasses in brutality and harshness. It happens to every conqueror, including the Japanese. History books do not need to be doctored.

    The Changi Museum exhibits from the Battle of the Malay Peninsula in World War II to the Japanese Occupation of Singapore. Many people around the world were involved in the Second World War, and many of them were forced to live hard lives. However, there is also the ruthless colonial policy of Western countries, and I think we should not forget the fact that we were able to regain our own living space from the oppressed local people who lived in the colonies.

    In Singapore, Changi Prison held Westerners during the Japanese occupation period. Life there was extremely harsh. In Singapore, this period is also referred to as the Dark Ages.

    The museum opened on February 15, 2001. It was the anniversary of the fall of Singapore to Japan in 1942. The museum houses photographs, paintings and letters written by prisoners of war, and there are guided tours of the Changi Museum. The purpose of the museum is to celebrate the ravages of Singapore during wartime and the courageous struggles of its people, and to pass it on to younger generations. It is a place you should visit at least once.

    We visited here after the Battle box. It doesn’t compare really. This museum had a lot of reading, although there was also an audio tour on offer. The display were memories of people who had been interred as prisoners of war. It was insightful and I really enjoyed seeing the paintings done by inmates with limited materials. No photos inside.

    The Changi Museum documents significant events during the Japanese Occupation, and serves as an important educational institution and resource centre.

    You have an audible tour and learn about the history of Singapore and the history of the Japanese during WW2. It is an emotional journey. Free admission,but one can leave a donation.

    A small museum and a chapel, tucked away in a quiet area, that carry painful history. The staff were both kind and professional. Our group was led by a small robot that gave descriptions in each sections of the museum. It’s an important institution that reflect the Singaporean and Changi histories.

    Full of history.
    Full of stories of love, tenacity, perseverance and hope.

    P. S. : Original chapel is within Republic Of Singapore Air Force Changi Airbase West. Block 151.

    A good view of Singapore under occupation.

    Small museum. About 30 displays. 75% are quite interesting. Headphones are available for a self guided tour. I went without and my companion used them. If you don’t mind reading lots of text, it’s ok to go without headphones and the experience is good, almost emotional.

    Story is told from an Australian / New Zealand / local perspective. British story is somewhat lacking, rather like their response at the time. Very small section from Japanese perspective is the most telling of all and gives great insight to the war in the east.

    Very clean and somber.

    Takes no more than two hours to get through it all.

    A lovely museum with a replica of the original St George’s Changi Chapel. The museum is to remember the many who were interred in Changi during the Japanese Occupation of Singapore between 1942 – 1945. A reminder of the resilience and determination of the thousands imprisoned there during WWII. It honours the memory of the determination of the men, women and children in the face of adversity.

    Robot Guide. Friendly Staff. I felt the old layout and photos left a stronger impression. This new layout starts well but fizzles out quickly towards the end. Still it’s free for Singaporeans and has an Instagram worthy chapel in the middle. Souvenirs are quite worth it too.

    The museum takes the visitors along a painful period in Singapore’s past and Changi’s links during those dark days.

    The displays are thoughtfully laid out, with contributions from survivors of the atrocities. It was a sombre feeling to be walking around the museum. Entrance is free of charge and the staff are very nice.

    The Changi Chapel and Museum reopened this year. In addition to the original Changi Chapel, there is also a newly rebuilt museum. There are 8 themed exhibition areas in the museum, which record thousands of people from different angles during the Japanese occupation of Singapore in 1942. Wan’s prisoners of war and civilians were held in Changi POW Camp, and how they survived their three-and-a-half years in captivity with extraordinary resourcefulness and tenacity.

    Tastefully done, great exhibits and a reminder of the horrors of war. Friendly staff on duty who pointed me to the Johore Battery about 1 km away. The roads are a little chaotic right now (and the rain is not helping) but I highly recommend a visit. Go to Changi Village / Beach after you’re done, and you can also visit one of the sites of the Sook Ching Massacre (car park 2A).

    A deep past that has many different interpretations.

    Some i talked to argued about life in the past. Some argued about how the prisoners should have been allowed home instead of being captive. Some even argued that some prisoners are innocent nonetheless.

    But re-visitng this chapel gave a deeper insight. We felt that the chapel and museum was a place of solace and peace. Where some destined to live their lives til death.


    I shant dwell to much since the places brings forth different views. The place is very well maintained, clean and is really a place to visit. Although it might not be convenient for some, it is worth to visit d past to better understand d present for the future.

    The venue also has a cafe for those who are hungry. Ohya , its not halal though. Nonetheless, come on and make a walk down the path of history along with ur family.
