Changi Chapel And Museum is a tribute to those imprisoned in Changi during World War II. Changi Chapel And Museum houses a collection of artwork and items by former prisoners-of-war (P.O.W.).

Of the highlights at Changi Chapel And Museum, the Changi Murals are the most well-known. A set of 5 paintings by Stanley Warren, the Changi Chapel And Museum houses a replica of these paintings in a re-created church interior.

At the centre of the Changi Chapel And Museum stands a replica of a Chapel, housing the Changi Cross. An original artifact, the Changi Cross is a brass cross, made by Harry Stogden from an artillery shell.

The Changi Chapel And Museum also pays tribute to the lesser known women interned here. This includes the Changi Quilts exhibit, and the paintings of Mary Angela Bateman in the War Time Artists exhibit.

If you're planning a visit, do note that while admission is free, a guided tour / audio tour costs $8, and is a more meaningful experience. Allocate between 1 to 2 hours for viewing.
