Description: The Changi Chapel and Museum is dedicated to the Prisoners-of-War (POW) who were interned at Changi camp during the Japanese Occupation in World War Two. Suffered appalling conditions and torture, they endured these dark years through their spirit of comradeship and a will to live. Their compelling and moving stories are told through memorabilia such as letters, photographs, and personal effects donated by formers POWs and their families, as well as paintings and sketches.
A replica of the Changi Murals are featured in the museum. These life-sized murals, created and subsequently restored by Stanley Warren, decorated a ward in the internment camp that was used as a chapel, and depicts scenes from the life of Christ. The original murals are now in the grounds of an operational military camp nearby. The Changi Chapel is a re-creation of one of many similar places of worship erected by POWs during their time in Changi, and sits in a garden frequented by veterans, as well as former POWS and their families.
