The Changi Museum is not very big. You can see the local customs of Changi here. In fact, it is even the earliest life of Singaporeans. There are not many people visiting, you can visit Changi Village together
Carol is our tour guide. He/she is very passionate about the theme of the museum and knows a lot about it. Unfortunately, the museum was closed for renovations and changed to visit the Krangi War Cemetery. It is also great, I would recommend it. Starting from Pashirris and ending with Krangi means a long journey back to the airport. But in general, it was a learning experience, and the whole process was very enjoyable. This is a touching and informative trip. Our guide is Carol Dragon. She was polite and friendly, telling us the story of Singapore's occupation and war during World War II. Carol knows the history and tells it so well that we really don't want the trip to end. She put forward her personal opinions and can answer all kinds of questions we asked her. I have an uncle who was once a prisoner of war in Changi, so this trip is what I look forward to most, and it really did not disappoint me. Unfortunately the museum will not be completed until 2020, so I hope to visit here again. I highly recommend this trip and thank Carol for his company and insight.
The Changi Museum is located in the restored building of Changi Prison. The personal stories of some prisoners under Japanese occupation are worth seeing. The original drawings provide a rough illustration of prison life, and the artifacts and utensils made by the prisoners show the prisoners’ Smart to deal with the harsh conditions they had to endure.
small but cozy museum. newly renovated. the chapel in courtyard is the highlight of the museum.
Amazing. Love the history.
suitable place to enrich yourself with and learn about Singapore history during WWII.
Located at the Eastern side of Singapore, Changi chapel and museum is dedicated to the 3 years and 8 months Singapore was under Japanese occupation during WWII. Very informative and educational for visitors to understand what those POW went thru during their times with lack of food, water and poor sanitation.Replica of chapels which helped those POW to get thru the tough time were also built. You can also find a replica of the murals done by the original artist, Stanley Warren who passed away before it was completed, leaving one of the mural incomplete the way it is. A place worth visiting.
Changi Prison was where the Japanese held allied prisoners of war during WWII. It was also the setting for James Clavell's novel 'King Rat' which I devoured as a kid so going there just after reading it was a real thrill for me even though I didn't get to see more than the museum and chapel (minors are not allowed in the actual prison which is still in use today). My parents got to go in so I was pretty jealous but stoked to actually be in the place I had imagined.
