      Changi Museum provides an emotional exploration of Singapore’s wartime history during the Japanese Occupation.World War II was a catastrophic event that affected lives of millions of people around the world.

      In Singapore, this tragedy was particularly painful for Prisoners-of-War (POWs) and civilians who were interned at the infamous Changi Prison during the Japanese Occupation. The Changi Museum is a somber reminder of this dark period, and sheds a light on the emotional events that unfolded here between 1942 and 1945.

      The museum opened at its current location on 15 February 2001 to coincide with the 59th Anniversary of the fall of Singapore to the Japanese in 1942. Here, visitors can view photographs, drawings and letters by prisoners and take a 45-minute guided tour around the site. Audio tours that relate the experiences of men and women who were imprisoned at Changi are also available.

      The site aims to educate younger generations about both the horror and heroics that emerged during the war in Singapore. Visitors will find a comprehensive collection of books on Changi and the POW experience in the Far East at the museum shop.

      The Changi Museum also hopes to be a space where POWs and civilian prisoners and their families can find closure from the war. It has collected nearly 5,000 records of registered Civilian Internees who were interned in Singapore during the Japanese Occupation in a searchable database online.

      After touring the museum, visitors can take in the historical sites and attractions that dot the surrounding area, including Changi Village, Changi Beach, old Changi Jail and Selarang Barracks.
