The Changi Museum & Chapel
A reminder of the suffering during WWII
What we say:
Singapore's infamous Changi POW Prison was demolished long ago, but this museum and replica of the prison chapel serve as a reminder of the suffering during World War II and Japanese occupation.
Old photos, POW diaries and relics like "banana money" are displayed in the air-con gallery alongside a salvaged chunk of the original prison wall.
The Changi quilt and murals — inspirational art created by POWs during their imprisonment — can be seen inside the chapel.
The museum has a library of WW2 references and gift shop selling books and historical prints.
