Feel the weight of history at The Changi Museum, offering a sobering insight into life during World War II. Located next to the infamous Changi prison and far-removed from the glamour of modern Singapore, the museum features paintings by William Haxworth--a POW--among its collection. Haxworth's secretly painted works present a stark view of prisoner life in crowded, unhygienic conditions. Take a 45-minute guided tour to gain a deeper understanding of the story.
