Battle for Singapore: The Stories of War
The Battlebox officially opens in March 2016, but to commemorate the 74th anniversary of the Battle for Singapore, and to honour the sacrifices made by soldiers and civilians alike, the former underground command centre will be open for sneak previews from 13 February 2016.
From 12 to 28 February 2016, NHB will offer 30 tour runs to six World War II-related sites and structures in Singapore, including Pasir Panjang Ridge, Tiong Bahru, and Mount Imbiah in Sentosa.
From now to 28 February 2016, the National Heritage Board will also be partnering other heritage experts, community groups and Museum Roundtable (MR) member-museums in presenting Singapore’s war stories through a series of guided tours to World War II sites, special programmes at MR museums and institutions, and public talks.
The Battle for Singapore 2016 project not only observes the significance of this period in Singapore’s history, but also serves as a channel for Singaporeans today to understand the resilience and unity of our forefathers during the tumultuous war years.
