Full description
Journey back to a fateful February morning in 1942 when surrender stared the British, Australian and Indian Army commanders in the face after 70 days of brutal fighting in Malaya and Singapore. Once known as an “impregnable fortress” of the British Empire, Singapore was about to fall.

Enter the Battlebox command center and investigate the momentous decision to surrender the city to the Japanese, marking the beginning of the end of the British Empire and the start of Singapore's darkest chapter.

Take an English-language guided tour of the museum to learn the causes behind “the worst disaster and largest capitulation in British history.”
