Built upon a quiet grassy knoll, Reflections at Bukit Chandu is a small, interactive museum on the outskirts of Singapore. Developed and managed by the National Archives of Singapore, this tiny museum is dedicated to the 1942 Battle of Pasir Panjang.
The 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. There are various interactive exhibits, artifacts, audio and video recordings, and wax mannequins. All of these depict the battle and pay tribute to the 42 brave soldiers of the Malay Regiment, many of whom lost their lives during the Second World War. The galleries and exhibitions are very moving as they include many personal items, depicting personal stories of the valiant soldiers. Although small, the museum is fascinating, engrossing, thoughtful and moving. There is even a theatre where the visitors can experience the life of the people during the World War Two. Reflections at Bukit Chandu is, therefore, a must visit for all those who are interested in military history, and the very important role played by Singapore during the Second World War.
