Changi Prison, which once served as a World War II prisoner-of-war camp for Allied troops, is still in use. Changi Museum is located just up the road from the prison, at the site of the Old Changi Prison Chapel. The museum is dedicated to all those who lived and died in Singapore, in particular the prisoners who suffered unspeakable torture at the hands of Japanese jailers during their internment here. Over the years, the museum has amassed a valuable collection of photographs, paintings, and personal effects donated by former POWs and their families. A selection of photographs by George Aspinall, then a young Australian trooper, and more than 400 sketches by W.R.M. Haxworth are among the works of art by various prison artists that are showcased here. Replicas of the Changi
Murals, which were originally drawn by prisoner Stanley Warren on the walls, are also on display. In the museum’s courtyard is a replica of the simple thatched-roof wooden chapel built by the POWs. The brass cross at the wreathed altar was crafted out of spent artillery casings. Tour groups of ten or more people are required to inform the museum of their visit, at least three days in advance.
