Right after an early lunch in the staff canteen in Changi Airport, we (4 adults) took a taxi to Changi Museum. You can get there by train and bus or by bus but we decided that it wasn't worth the hassle of lugging our bags around.
|... yep those bags|
Taxi charged according to meter and it was worth it divided by 4 pax and 4 bags.
The museum staff was very nice and polite. Our bags were left at the souvenir shop (opposite the entrance) which visitors will end up at after touring the museum. While entry is free, visitors can opt for audio tour at SG$8 per adult.
Some people might find the museum a bit text-heavy but I thought it was informative. Exhibition is mainly about the World War 2 (think Japanese Occupation). The items on display looked genuine and the letters brought tears to my eyes. One can't help feeling a bit sad (and depressed) while going through the exhibitions.
I love the drawings on the wall and the rainbow-coloured paper pelicans in particular. Expect to spend 1 to 2 hours here for casual visit. If you're planning to pay your respect at the chapel, perhaps even close to 3 hours.

So from the museum, we walked to the bus stop in front of the museum to take a bus to our hostel in Arab Street...
