Changi Chapel & Museum

My colleague & I made a trip to Changi Chapel & Museum near our workplace after 4 years in Singapore Prison Headquarters. We had to sneak there during lunch time! :D

In honouring the spirit and commitment of those who rose from the depths of adversity, the Museum inspires future generations to come and deepen their appreciation of the heroic and inspirational stories that unfolded in Changi during the war. The Changi Museum is dedicated to all those who lived and died in Singapore, in particular the Changi area, during the dark years of World War II.

Main entrance

The Chapel.

Well wishes and messages from visitors.

Tsurus (Japanese cranes) at the museum. Messages of world peace were left by Japanese visitors.  More info on Tsuru here.

Sand from Changi Beach, believed to be the first killing ground in Singapore. It was the site for the massacre of 66 Chinese men by the Japanese soldiers.

There were many exhibits surrounding the chapel (photography not allowed) - stories and pictures of Prisoner of Wars, old Changi Prison and its workshops. The trip was educating. :)
