What people are saying about Battle Box Visitors Center
This is a detailed overview of the fall of Singapore in WWII from the first aerial bombardment on the 8th December 1941 to the surrender on the 15th February 1942. Superior Japanese tactics as well as the early destruction of British naval and then air power is well described. Accurate reproductions of situation rooms, audiovisuals and description by an excellent guide made this a worthwhile tour.
Informative and clear about Singapore’s history and it’s relationship to Fort Canning. The tour guide was very clear and gave us a sometimes emotional yet enjoyable view of the struggles of the people of Singapore. Thank you.
Great tour, really informative, interesting, and so evocative to stand where the decisions were actually made. Horace was a great tour guide and he really made the whole experience come alive. Totally recommend this tour!
Horace the narrator was great. An interesting historical review. My wife also enjoyed it as it was not physically taxing. Taxi driver had trouble finding location. Staff called taxi after the tour and were very gracious
Really great tour! Very educational. I would have shortened some of the outdoor overall history of the hill in favor of learning even more about the history of the Battlebox and the Pacific in WW II.
