Built upon a quiet grassy knoll of Bukit Chandu in Singapore, Reflections at Bukit Chandu is a small, interactive museum and heritage centre recounting the fierce 1942 Battle of Pasir Panjang (against the Japanese in Singapore during World War II). Developed and managed by the National Archives of Singapore, this tiny museum is filled with interactive exhibits, artefacts, audio and video recordings, and wax mannequins depicting the battle and paying tribute to the 42 brave soldiers of the Malay Regiment, many of whom lost their lives during the Second World War. A must-visit for those interested in military history.
Reflections at Bukit Chandu museum is housed within a British-era colonial style black and white bungalow, the arches and windows of which have been beautifully restored and maintained. The bungalow is surrounded by lush greens and is a stone's throw away from the actual battleground. Visitors can take a walk through the galleries, which are on two levels, and houses many personal items of the valiant soldiers. Although small, Reflections at Bukit Chandu is fascinating, engrossing, thoughtful and moving. There is even a theatre where the visitors can experience the life of the people during World War Two.
Note: Reflections at Bukit Chandu is closed for a revamp from 1 October 2018 and is slated to reopen in early 2021.
