The prison was demolished in 2005. In this light, the Changi Prison Museum is a museum dedicated to Singapore’s history during the Second World War. It was originally located outside the Changi Prison, however, in 1991 it was relocated to 1 km away near the junction of Tampine and Changi Road. Originally built by the British to hold 450 prisoners, the Changi prison was later turned into an internment camp by the Japanese for 3,500 civilians. Within the walls of the museum can be seen a variety of drawings, paintings, photographs, personal effect and artifacts from the Prison’s days as internment camps, which provide valuable insight on the daily life of the internees. The museum also contains a replica of a Prisoner-of-war chapel.

The museum, as with many of the country’s attractions, can be reached by the MRT transport system, which is something to keep in mind when looking for a holiday hotel Singapore. Tourists who do not want to forgo comfort and elegance should definitely consider the Orchard Hotel Singapore which offers a variety of facilities and services, making it one above any other hotel Singapore.
