Don’t get me wrong, this is a lovely little museum and well designed by the archives folk. I just felt because I had been to other Singapore museums and heard a lot of the history before, that I didn’t get as much out of it as I hoped. Also I was very disappointed with the external appearance of the building which is clearly overdue for some cleaning & painting. I came for the art deco building as much as the exhibition. A friend showed me her photos from 2016 and the building looked much better then.

Very interesting place. Not very big,but chronicles the fall of Singapore and life during the Japanese occupation and after the war. This place could use a little cafe,the only refreshments being a vending machine outside of the main building.
The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Good if you are interested in Singapore history and what happened during World war Two in Singapore.
The battle and surrender of Singapore by the British and what happened after.

Very good museum hidden away amongst housing developments. Interesting Art Deco frontage for the architectural buffs to admire.
Only cost $ 7 sing and free if you are a resident or work pass holder.

Didn’t realise this was where the British actually surrendered to the Japanese, the chairs in the room are originals but the actual table where the documents were signed is located elsewhere.

Lots of interesting collections to look at, much of it provided by people who lived through the war in Singapore.

It’s split into two parts; pre war and occupation and the post war period. Well laid out with visual and audio displays.

If you are a history buff or like me, just wanted to know a bit more, it’s worth a visit. Buses pass nearby and I think there was a vending machine for drinks outside. Spent a couple of hours and felt as if I had seen most of the displays. Friendly helpful staff and wasn’t crowded, in fact I was on my own for most of the visit.

Quite an interesting if short visit of about an hour, spanning the periods from World War 2 battles between the British and the Japanese, the Fall of Singapore and the Japanese Occupation, as well as post-War when the British forces returned and the war crimes trials.

There is also a recreation of the British surrender by Percival to the Japanese, as well as a transcript of what they said.

What was especially interesting in the well researched and interactive displays was the Asian and Singaporean perspectives, with films and audio of how the locals survived during that bleak period. Do look out for the displays of ration cards, currencies and travel documents, as well as what food was scrounged up to survive.

Entry is free for Singaporeans and PRs, with proof of IDs. You should visit this in conjunction with the WW2 exhibition at the National Museum at Stamford Road, and they also provide a one way transfer here.

Here is the site where Singapore was formally surrendered by the British to the imperial Japanese. You will find detailed account of Singapore's war history from its exhibits. The interior of the museum is nicely done up and the aircon is powerful. Highly recommended for the history buff!

We've been meaning to visit the former Ford factory for years now, but have only just got round to it. The frontage is definitely iconic, but the gallery really is a hidden gem, with some really interesting newspapers, magazines, photos and artefacts from Singapore's wartime and Emergency period. While the site focuses on the failure of the Singapore Strategy and the subsequent British surrender, there are also insights into the occupation, including outrages such as the Sook Ching massacres and mistreatment of the civilian population. Little-known aspects of the conflict are covered, including the raising of the Indian National Army, which subsequently fought the British at Imphal, and there's coverage of the KMT and Communist anti-Japanese forces, including the MPAJA. The museum also covers some postwar events including the Chinese Middle School students' movement and the Hock Lee bus riots.

The museum packs a lot into a small space and is well worth visiting.

Very interesting museum, loads of interesting material which was very well presented and lots of good films to watch as a living history of a critical time in Singapore’s history.

This is a great museum to visit. A brilliant and comprehensive history of the events leading to the start of the Japanese invasion of Singapore, the war itself, the surrender and the occupation of the island.
The room in which General Percival signed the surrender document is still there with the original chairs. The table is a replica as the original is now at a museum in Australia.
A must visit for anyone who is interested in the history of Singapore.
Word of advice. To preserve the exhibits, the room temperature is set at 13C, so it’s very cold.
Highly recommended.

I found the Former Ford Factory Museum to be a place of historic significance, it was a very moving experience to walk in the footsteps of the four British Officers who surrendered Singapore to the Japanese Army on 15 February 1942. The Former Ford Factory is a beautifully restored Art Deco style building housing exhibits of enormous interest. It was quite incredible to be in the boardroom where the surrender documents were signed, the table is a replica of the original, which is currently in the Australian War Memorial. There is a film showing the events of that particular day, and the clock is stopped at just after 6pm, the time of the signing. I appreciated speaking with Frances, a staff member at the Museum. Frances is a self taught historian who is passionate and well informed about that part of Singapore's history and it was a privilege to discuss the events with her. There are many interesting things to see and we were there about three hours.
We went by MRT to Hillview Station, and then about 5 minutes on a bus. Apparently it is also possible to go there directly by bus. Highly recommended, well worth it. We have decided to go back next time we are in Singapore as it is worth a second visit.
Our visit cost $3 each and only credit cards are accepted.
