Most people who have lived in Singapore would know that our garden city has come a long way from once being occupied by the Japanese during World War II. And to remember the past, there are many sites and landmarks in Singapore with cultural significance to visit.
One such landmark is Changi Chapel and Museum, tucked away in the far east of Changi. Newly revamped in May 2021, there are 8 galleries within that document the area’s early beginnings, and taking visitors through the war era through videos and interactive screens. There is even a recreated prison cell to show firsthand what it was like back then!
Those with an interest in history can also spend time observing the new artifacts collected and displayed in the museum. This can also be an educational journey for little ones, where they can get the chance to see rare items from yesteryears.
Once you’re done exploring the interiors, head outdoors to spend a quiet and pensive moment at the Chapel. Don’t leave without paying the museum shop and eatery, The Bark Café, a visit!
Singapore has a rich cultural history. Sites like these will help educate and shed light on the past for both kids and adults.
Families of all ages, and those who want to learn more about Singapore’s history.
