Changi Museum in Singapore

Overview of Changi Museum

Singapore Changi Museum is a museum dedicated to Singapore's history during the Second World War. The museum was relocated to its new home on 2001 to replace the former Changi Prison Chapel and Museum to make way for the Changi Prison expansion.

The museum honours the spirit and commitment of those who rose from the depths of adversity, inspiring future generations to come and deepen their appreciation of the heroic and inspirational stories that took place in Changi.

Through documentation of significant events of the Japanese Occupation, the Museum also serves as an important educational institution and resource centre. As for the Prisoners-of-War (POWs) and their families, it is a site that allows for closure of the many emotional scars inflicted by the war years.

The highlight of this museum is a series of magnificent wall paintings called The Changi Murals, painstakingly recreated from the originals painted by Bombardier Stanley Warren. Visitors are also able to view screenings of 'Changi Through The Eyes of Haxworth' and 'Elizabeth Choy' videos. Tucked in a quiet corner of the museum is 'The Changi University', a research area that houses a collection of rare books and literature depicting life during the war years.

There are Sunday services conducted by various church groups at the Changi Chapel every Sunday. Visitors are welcome to join these services.
