Book a Fort Siloso Tour (FREE!)

Have you ever visited Fort Siloso? Go on a free public tour (every 2nd and 3rd Saturday of the month so it’s not on this weekend but it’s worth booking ahead now as it books out fast). Fort Siloso is home to a wealth of WWII memorabilia, including the largest collection of coastal guns in Singapore. Explore the fortified military structures and tunnels with passionate guides, as they journey with you back in time with stories of yesteryears. Conclude your tour at the newly revamped Surrender Chambers, where you will be guided through six interactive zones, from the Japanese invasion till their eventual surrender at the end of WWII. No indication of kid-friendliness of these tours is given so best to call ahead depending on the age of your child. Limited slots available so register ahead!
Deets: Every 2nd and 3rd Saturday of the month, 3pm – 4:30pm, Fort Siloso, Siloso Point
