The Changi Chapel which is housed within the open-air courtyard of the museum, was built by Changi Prison inmates. The original Chapel built by Australian Prisoners is now housed in Australia.

Letters, photographs, drawings and personal effects in the Museum relate the pain and terror of the Japanese Occupation (1942-45) and imprisonment of more than 50,000 civilians and soldiers in Changi.

           
 

The Changi Museum was relocated to its new home on 15 February 2001 .
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. There is a lovely open-air café where you can have a bite to eat and drinks.

Most definitely worth a visit!!
