Singapore's only preserved coastal fort stands as witness to one of the most tempestuous chapters in local history.
In the 19th century, Singapore became an important sea trading port for the British. To defend the island from sea invasion, Fort Siloso was one of three forts that were built on Sentosa Island (once known as Pulau Blakang Mati).
During World War II, the Japanese troops invaded Singapore from the north through peninsula Malaya and the guns in Fort Siloso were turned landwards to support the ground troops.
Today, being the only preserved coastal fort in Singapore, Fort Siloso is a historical attraction with a rich memorabilia of pre-WWII and WWII-era guns and remains of fortified military structures and tunnels.
Admission into Fort Siloso is FREE.
The gallery features the British and Japanese surrender waxworks which marked two significant surrender ceremonies in Singapore during WW2. The Surrender Chambers feature commentaries and exhibitions which bring you through the history of Singapore, from the British Surrender to the independence of our nation.
Go back in time and experience these surrenders with our guided commentary available every 30 minutes.
