  • Visited it before renovations. Good preservation of building and the famous conference room where the British surrender took place. Historically significant as it represented the worst defeat of the British army and the fall of Singapore. However, the low profile and isolation of the place belies its importance.
  • Closed for renervation will re open in 2017 shame would have liked to see it
  • Come enjoy a piece of Singapore's history here. Open to the public it pays remembrance to the key events leading up to Singapore's surrender during the world war 2
  • For the history buffs, this place is where exactly the British surrendered Singapore to the Japanese during the 2nd World War. Small and cozy museum, but worth a visit at least once :)
  • Nice place to know singapore history
