During WW II, after the Japanese had invaded Singapore, many Australians, British, Singaporeans and others were imprisoned at Changi Prison. These people lived under concentration camp conditions. Many died building the death railway from Thailand to Burma. The real prison, has sadly been torn down (another example of how Singapore mows down history). Various parts of the prison have been saved and are in the museum-the others have been sent to Australia-where they are building a museum.

Admission is free. Not sure if the guided tours are free or if you have to pay a little something. This is a very interesting museum-you will learn about how these women and men survived during these hard times.

There is a nice cafe on the grounds of this museum.

The Johore battery is nearby-maybe a 20-30 min walk from the museum or a quick drive.
