4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web
Take a step back in time to World War II with a trip to Fort Siloso, the restored coastal gun battery from Fortress Singapore. The fort played a significant role as a sea trading port for the British in the 19th century, and it also served as a defense from sea invasion. The fort even served as a prisoner-of-war camp briefly during Japanese occupation. It is the only preserved coastal fort in the country, and it is now home to a military museum full of memorabilia of World War II guns, remains of fortified military structures, and tunnels. The fort is best explored with the help of a knowledgeable guide, who will impart more information than the limited signage provides.

  • Something for free on sentosa! Very interesting stop, sky walk is also filled with information about the surrounding islands. The Fort has lots of buildings with very good air conditioning too. Highly recommended if you have an hour or two.
  • The chance to see some real history was well worth trip to Sentosa. The displays are very well done and they've done a great job reconstructing the site. The skywalk is also very cool! The guided tour covering the surrenders was well worth the fee.
  • If you in 2 WW2 history this place is very interesting. If not skip it. We went there early in a weekend. And the place was empty.
  • Nothing much to see. Get pretty hot. Information and structure of the Japanese occupation
  • Great sky walk leading to the fort. A chance to learn some history of the area.
