I had the honour to visit Battlebox earlier in September. George hosted my friends and I during the tour and he made the tour exciting, informative and definitely interactive. It is a half hour guided tour that takes us through the different rooms and highlights of what to look out for. After that we were left to explore the history behind the Battlebox & the war. It is insightful as there are alot of details that were not taught or shared in schools' syllabus. This is a private museum and no photography or videography is allowed. And we definitely respect the privacy of this place. Hence, if you would like to find out more. Please do check this out.

Battle box is an amazing experience that transports you to world War 2, signifying Singapore's role during those turbulent times. Relive, imagine , experience first hand the conditions under which the Battle with the Japaness was planned, fought and eventually surrendered. The story is interestingly told using video footage, pictures, models and rare archives. Must visit !

One of the best historical experiences I've ever been to and recommended to most of my friends. I learnt so much and with the personal tour guide, we really had a great time - the Battlebox tells of the battles over Singapore and I learnt so much. The underground bunker is in the exact state from almost 80yrs ago and there's many artifacts from the war days in excellent condition. Recommended

Our tour was informative, interesting and very factual. Our family loved the tour very worth doing in Sinagpore!

I would recommend all post war Singaporeans visit this historical place; learn how about the pre-colonial days; how the British had to surrender to the Japanese - would be one of the most humiliating moments of British history & later see the defeat of the Japanese. Time you visit with a visit to the many gardens surrounding the hills & drop by the Fort Canning hotel for refreshment. An afternoon well spent!
