This once-secret bunker documents Singapore’s past during World War II. Located inside Fort Canning Hill, the Battlebox was once a top-secret bunker that was built to be bombproof and self-sufficient. Construction was completed between 1936 and 1941. During WWII, it served as an underground command centre for British-led troops in Singapore. It was also inside the Battlebox that the British made the momentous decision on 15 February 1942 to surrender Singapore to the Japanese forces.

  • The tour was interesting; the tour guide threw in some interesting titbits about the war. Unknowingly, spent 2 hours in the bunker, going through the write up and videos. Worth visiting, if you enjoy history. :)
  • The BattleBox Museum was fascinating with lots of information about the history of Fort Canning and the events of World War II leading up to the Surrender of Singapore. Well worth the visit. Thanks to our guide, Joanne.
