  • I think we all need to be reminded of what humans are capable of and this is a visual showing this. The site is extremely well kept and looked after. 
  • I found this museum to be deeply moving and above all it was a respectful memorial to the previous occupants of Changi Prison. Full of history and the experiences of those who lived through this perio...  more »
  • We took the MRT to Kranji then about a 20 minute walk to the memorial. Like other WW2 memorials and cemeteries (we have visited many in Belgium and France) the cemetery is immaculately maintained. It ...  more »

  • How to get there: From Kranji mrt bus stop take either of these buses: 160, 170, 178, 960, 961 or 961c. Alight at the 2nd stop, after coming out of the bus, from you stance, walk left all the way untill you see a small road. Follow the path of the road until you see a building, the cemetery is just right ahead.
  • I had some difficulty finding it. The MRT station at Kranji no longer has a map and the lady in the office gave me verbal directions which were wrong. I asked a taxi driver on the other rank, but he didn't know where it was either. So, if you come out of the Kranji Station, where the bus stops are, turn left, keeping the Singapore Turf Club and the MRT elevated line on your left. Keep going until you get to a crossroads intersection controlled by traffic lights. Cross over (turning neither left or right) and take the next left up a small road. Between the inersection you have crossed and the small road, there is currently a building site. Walk up the road and the cemetery is ahead of you.
  • Solemn place of historical importance. A reminder of what happened in the past and what shouldn't happen in the future.
  • Beautiful setting for war cemetery - memorial to 240,000 war dead, many of whom were never found and therefore do not have graves. The memorial does not differentiate between ranks, races or religions.
  • It's surprising its not been given the importance it deserves..beautiful memorial..really touched with Singapore govts dedication in keeping alive the names of Indian and other Commonwealth soldeirs sacrifice..great job Singapore!
