Reflections at Bukit Chandu was closed in 2018 for major redevelopment works and reopens in Sep 2021 with reopening activities.
Venue: Reflections at Bukit Chandu, 31-K Pepys Road Singapore 118458
Dates: 11 & 12 Sep
Reflections at Bukit Chandu (RBC) will reopen its doors to the public on 9 September. The newly revamped RBC reopens with an enhanced retelling of the story of the Malay Regiment in the Battle of Pasir Panjang, during which the heavily outnumbered soldiers from the regiment made a heroic last stand against a 13,000-strong Japanese force.
First opened in 2002, RBC is housed in a bungalow that was originally built in 1930 for senior British staff of an Opium Packing Plant down the hill. RBC was closed in 2018 for major redevelopment works and reopens on 9 Sep 2021.
The revamped World War Two interpretative centre takes visitors on an immersive journey to remember the brave soldiers of the Malay Regiment with an expanded narrative that includes the site-specific history of Pasir Panjang and Bukit Chandu.
