(140+ reviews on the web)
Military Museum
The monumental Surviving the Japanese Occupation: War and Its Legacies is not only the site of the city’s first manufacturer of Henry Ford’s automobiles in the early 20th century; it is also historically significant to the nation’s World War II efforts and struggles. Head here to be in the same space where the British formally surrendered to the Japanese, who went on to occupy Singapore in a brutal regime that lasted three years from 1942 to 1945. Survey the collection of memories, reflections, and artifacts that speak of the darkest, but also most resilient and brave period in modern Singaporean history.
