Part of the tour of the WW2 Japanese invasion of Singapore and I learned a lot more about what happened.

The museum presents a dark part of Singapore's history. The displays were tasteful and avoid overdramatising the horror of what would have been. Entry is free but the self guided audio tour costs $12 for two to share. It is a fair way out of town and requires changing from train to bus if on public transport.

The museum and chapel are located on the site of the infamous Changi Prison which was demolished in the 1980s. The museum's exhibits are presented in what are by today's standards a somewhat old fashioned manner. It is especially meaningful for anyone who has relatives who were subjected to the bestiality of the Japanese The very moving letters displayed for relatives are testament to that.
The museum closed on the 1st April but the chapel will still by open for visitors. The museum will, apparently, be given a complete update and is scheduled to reopen next year.

I wanted to go as I felt I owed to the people of Singapore to see how they had suffered at the hands of the Japanese. It was a well presented if not particularly well laid out exhibition.
