Constructed during World War II, Fort Siloso in Sentosa was part of the British defense of 'Fortress Singapore' against the Japanese invasion. Today, Fort Siloso is the only remaining fortress in Sentosa from that era, and it has been restored as a military museum. 'Siloso' actually means 'Jealous Person' in Filipino.

A large part of the appeal of Fort Siloso is the vast display of coastal guns and other World War II artillery. Some, like the Gun Display (6-Inch Gun), have been re-created with models of British soldiers. Be sure to explore the restored bunkers and tunnels, like Tunnel B Complex POW Experience or Tunnel C Complex for an idea of how soldiers worked in them.

One of the star attractions at Fort Siloso is the Surrender Chambers, which maps out the story of the British surrender, the Japanese occupation, and finally the Japanese surrender at the end of the war, all complete with re-creations of the actual signing of the surrender documents. Fort Siloso also offers several interactive 'war' experiences, like Laser Clay or Tunnel Battle, which use laser tag technology.

Exploring Fort Siloso on foot is actually quite a good workout, as you'll have to climb both hills and stairs. The exhibits are quite widely spread, though rather linear in terms of layout. A tram service and guided tours are available as well. If you're planning a visit to Fort Siloso, do note that admission fees cost SGD $8 per person, and allocate between 1 to 2 hours for viewing. Also, food isn't sold here, and drinks are only available through vending machines.
