Discover the untold stories and personal perspective of Singaporeans who survived the war at National Museum of Singapore’s new exhibition Dislocations: Memory and Meaning of the Fall of Singapore, 1942. The exhibition showcases the World War II narratives to provide an understanding of the experiences that Singaporeans faced during wartime. It brings together the different personal accounts and examines the impact war had on the generations of Singaporeans up to the present. Take a look at the seven exhibition zones featuring the historical artefacts together with video projections and digital touchpoints. There’s also an immersive game, Sunset in Singapore, where visitors can encounter the war through the lens of the various groups of people - a nurse, soldier and civilian. Also on display is the AMX-13 SM1 tank. It signifies the fortitude and the fighting spirit of our nation as well as a reminder of how everyone has a part to play in ensuring the country’s security.
