Fort Siloso, Sentosa Island

#10 of 59 in Historic Sites in Singapore
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Nice fort with many old guns well preserved and tunnels. Free entry but no guided tours. Some areas are closed but still an interesting area.
  • Must visit for history lovers. Will take you to WW II days and the way things turned up for the Island. Very well maintained. Next to ever happening Silioso beach.
  • A very interesting monument about the history of Singapore during world war 2. A must see if you are in Sentosa. By the way, it's 100% free, something you may appreciate on Sentosa
  • Our boys really enjoyed this. A real rabbit warren with lots of information and some videos to watch.
  • Worth visiting to learn about the military history of Singapore. It's also the only free thing to do in Sentosa.
