The Changi Museum, Singapore
(4.3/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
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. Add The Changi Museum and other attractions to your Singapore trip itinerary using our Singapore family vacation planner.

  • Great piece of history of World War 2 which highlights Japanese war crimes and the plight of those captured on the island.
